Significant cost avoidance and reduction of valuable resources can be achieved through an effective energy management program. Environmental benefits, such as a reduction of greenhouse gas emissions and other pollutants associated with the production of electricity or the burning of fuels, will be attained through a comprehensive energy program. This program requires an all -hands effort and an on-going commitment to sound energy management practices, life -cycle cost-effective energy efficiency projects, and efficient day-to-day operations of MCAS Miramar resources and facilities. The program does not sacrifice quality of life or productivity for energy efficiency. An effective energy management program will improve quality of life and productivity by tailoring energy use to actual needs and by freeing up dollars otherwise spent on energy for more urgent mission and personnel support requirements. The energy management program also has objectives to increase energy security aboard the installation to further the Marine Corps resilience towards external threats.
