More than 500 military bases encompass nearly 2 billion square feet of space with an annual energy bill of more than $3 billion.

The side modules lead to segments within the video that demonstrate how each branch of the U.S. military is using energy savings performance contracts (ESPCs), utility energy service contracts (UESCs), on-site renewable power purchase agreements (PPAs), and other project funding to help reach aggressive energy and greenhouse gas reduction goals.
