A recent ribbon cutting ceremony at Naval Facilities Engineering Systems Command (NAVFAC) Southwest in San Diego inaugurated the new Facility & Energy Operations Center (FEOC).

Along with construction of the FEOC building, the project also replaced existing copper wire with fiber optic network connecting 180 buildings in Sand Diego, according to DVIDs.

“We are pleased to have an operations center where all the data from our building and utility control systems are integrated and displayed in near-real team manner,” said Paige Hoffmann, NAVFAC Southwest Smart Grid team lead. “Our Smart Grid analysts now have access to actionable information which allows us to better support the Navy mission, reduce the Navy’s energy bill, and move toward condition-based maintenance of Southwest Region facilities.”

FEOC is co-located with the Regional Operations Center at Naval Base Point Loma (NBPL) and supports the entire Southwest Region.
