U.S. Army Selects Eaton to Support Its Global Power Conservation and Alternative Energy Initiatives

Under the contract, Eaton will provide existing condition surveys, system designs, installation and commissioning for energy efficiency and renewable energy projects.

PITTSBURGH … Power management company Eaton today announced it has been contracted by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Engineering and Support Center, Huntsville, to help advance energy conservation and implementation of alternative energy projects at U.S. Army-operated facilities around the world. Eaton is one of 11 companies to receive the $600 million shared capacity multiple award task order contract.


"Drawing on our proven record of successful energy projects with major government customers, Eaton is well positioned to help the U.S. Army reduceoperating costs and increase electrical resilience in the U.S. and abroad," said John Stampfel, vice president and general manager, Electrical Engineering Services and Systems Division, Eaton.

Under the contract, Eaton will provide existing condition surveys, system designs, installation and commissioning for energy efficiency and renewable energy projects. Planned projects include, but are not limited to, the implementation of solar and wind generation, geothermal heating, lighting retrofits, and energy monitoring and control systems. The services entail aproject scope of one base year, with four optional years to include all design and construction work.

The contract is one of several recently awarded to Eaton from government organizations, including $35 million to evaluate electrical systems at U.S.Department of Defense facilities, $10 million in retro-commissioning services for U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs medical campuses, and $3.2 million to evaluate and modernize lighting systems at the Pentagon in Washington, D.C.

The project will be led by Eaton's Electrical Engineering Services and Systems Division and its Energy Solutions Group, which performs energy-focused engineering, construction, and consulting services for a wide range of market segments, including government, health care, education, utilities, commercial, industrial and other institutional facilities.

SolarEdge Technologies - Solar Inverters, Power Optimizers and PV Monitoring

The SolarEdge PV inverter combines sophisticated digital control technology with efficient power conversion architecture to achieve superior solar power harvesting and best-in-class reliability. The fixed-voltage technology ensures the solar inverter is always working at its optimal input voltage over a wider range of string lengths and regardless of environmental conditions. A proprietary data monitoring receiver has been integrated into the inverter and aggregates the power optimizer performance data from each PV module. This data can be transmitted to the web and accessed via the SolarEdge Monitoring Portal for performance analysis, fault detection and troubleshooting of PV systems.
