JITC Indian Head is Powerhouse in Energy Conservation

A DISA facility was recognized for excellence in energy conservation by the Naval Support Activity South Potomac (NSASP), which provides installation management services for more than 20 locations in the Washington, D.C., region, including the Naval Support Facility (NSF) in Dahlgren, Virginia, and the NSF in Indian Head, Maryland.

The agency’s Joint Interoperability Test Command (JITC) is a tenant of NSF Indian Head and received an award for the following energy conservation activities conducted in 2014:

  • Installation of energy efficient LED lighting in several areas inside the JITC complex.
  • Replacement of all exterior security lighting with LEDs. 
  • Installation of water saving valves in restrooms.
  • Upgrading heating systems to energy efficient heat pumps.
  • Closely monitoring and controlling building temperatures.

Raymond Hrynko, facility team lead and energy officer at JITC Indian Head, was also individually recognized for his support for and enhancement of the NSASP regional energy program.

“Both the command and individual awards are a testament to the efforts of Mr. Hrynko and the JITC facilities team,” said JITC Commander Army COL Doug Orsi. “They are committed to making energy conservation a standard practice and to building a culture of energy awareness within the command.”
