    Naval Air Station Pensacola

    The award seeks to applaud Navy ships, installations and squadrons for outstanding accomplishments in the areas of procurement, storage, and delivery of energy to naval forces. Access to secure, reliable sources of energy enhances Navy readiness and mission capability.

    The SECNAV announces the previous period’s award winners during the third quarter of each fiscal year. The winners are authorized to display the SECNAV Energy Conservation Award flag for a period of one year from the announcement date.

    NAS Pensacola was deemed to meet the gold level of achievement standards, which indicates a very good to outstanding energy conservation program. In total, 31 bases and installations were determined to meet this benchmark as well.

    Sabrina Williams, the Installation Energy Manager for NAS Pensacola, was pleased with the accomplishments of her team.

    “To earn the SECNAV Energy and Water Gold Award means NAS Pensacola has a very good to outstanding energy program.” Williams said. “This is a great accomplishment for any installation.”

    The SECNAV Energy Conservation award was established to recognize and promote excellence in energy management and energy conservation within the Department of the Navy. These efficiency efforts are integral to the development of war fighting capabilities, which result in choices for the operational commanders.

    With this accomplishment, Williams feels NAS Pensacola will continue to grow and improve with regards to energy conservation.

    “Moving forward, NAS Pensacola will continue to plan, program and implement energy projects to improve our facilities,” Williams said. “In addition, the installation will continue to promote energy awareness and encourage all commands onboard the base to embrace an energy culture.”

    NAS Pensacola, situated in Escambia County, employs more than 16,000 military and 7,400 civilian personnel. This includes major tenant commands: Naval Aviation Schools Command, Naval Air Technical Training Center, Marine Aviation Training Support Group 21 and 23, the Blue Angels, and the headquarters for Naval Education and Training Command.
