With this final agreement between the RAFB Office of Civil Engineering and Flint Energies, the Air Force Base will now be buying green energy for its entire Museum complex.

“Flint Energies is proud to assist the US Air Force with its goal of being environmentally responsible with this purchase of green energy for the Museum,” said Flint Sr. Vice President Jimmy Autry. “The relationship between the Museum of Aviation and Flint goes all the way back through the Museum’s history.”

Robins AFB had been buying enough green energy for the Museum’s Eagle building since 2009. Flint serves electricity to the entire Museum complex, but not the rest of Robins Air Force Base, according to Autry. The new rate agreement is in response to a request made by Robins Office of Civil Engineering back in 2008 to find suitable renewable energy to help meet the US Department of Defense’s mandate.

The green power to be used by the Museum complex is generated at the Houston County landfill located just off Georgia Hwy 247 near Hawkinsville. The landfill generation located there gives Flint members access to 3.2 megawatts of environmentally “green power” at an affordable price.

Flint’s new Commercial Green Energy rate will actually create savings for the US Air Force over the prior billing rate. The Museum is the first Flint Energies member to sign up for Commercial Green Energy, but the rate is potentially available to other commercial members.

Since January 2011, Houston County has been selling its waste methane (landfill) gas to Flint. Flint buys the methane gas from the County and buys power generation output from PowerSecure International, Inc. (NASDAQ:POWR) powersecure.com, who owns and operates the generation plant facilities. “This partnership is good for Robins Air Force Base, for Flint members, and for the residents of Houston County who benefit from the revenues derived from what was considered waste,” said Autry.

Renewable ‘green’ energy is an important part of the future of power generation for Flint Energies members. “We were part of Green Power EMC’s greenpoweremc.com efforts to build renewable energy generation, including the first landfill gas in the State of Georgia in 2003 at the Taylor County landfill in Mauk, Autry added.”

Flint also demonstrates renewable energy generation with a solar panel installation at Huntington Middle School in Warner Robins. Flint member Clean Control Corporation hosts a 150 kilowatt solar power installation owned by Green Power EMC, and several of Flint’s residential members have integrated their solar panels into the power grid. About 10% of Flint’s power generation comes from hydroelectric power purchased from the Southeastern Power Administration.

“Green power is electric energy produced by renewable, more environmentally friendly sources, leading to less negative air, water and natural resource impacts,” said Autry. “Typical technologies used to create green power are landfill gas, solar, wind, geothermal, biomass, and low-impact hydropower.”

“As in all renewable energy purchases, energy used by the Museum of Aviation buildings is not directly routed from the landfill to the Museum,” said Autry,“but by subscribing to green energy, the US Air Force is supporting the purchase and use of clean renewable energy.”

The Museum of Aviation uses about 2.4 million kilowatt-hours per year.
