Marine Corps Base Camp Pendleton
"The West Coast's Premier Expeditionary Training Base"
The Resident Energy Conservation Program (RECP) is the result of Department of Defense (DoD) initiative that has been implemented in all Public-Private Venture (PPV) family housing units aboard all Marine Corps installations. The RECP supports the Marine Corps energy strategy by encouraging energy conservation and reducing electricity costs.
The goal of RECP is to promote good stewardship of our resources and environment through awareness, personal responsibility, and education. In an effort to encourage energy conservation, Base housing residents will receive monthly utility consumption statements so they are fully informed about their energy usage. Housing residents should begin comparing their actual usage with the usage target amount as soon as they receive their first statement.
The RECP program is fully implemented at Camp Pendleton. Residents within +/- 10% of the average usage for their type home will have no cost impact. Residents using less energy than the +/- 10% average will be rewarded with cash/credit. Residents using more energy than the +/- 10% average are billed for that usage in excess of the normal usage buffer zone.
Each family can influence their own destiny.
Savings generated by the RECP will be reinvested into PPV housing communities to improve homes, playgrounds, community centers, and quality of life for Servicemembers and their families.
The Headquarters Marine Corps RECP Guidance allows Wounded Warriors and Registered Exceptional Family Members (EFM) members living in privatized housing who consume significant amounts of electricity as a direct result of their unique medical circumstances to request a waiver. Waiver requests must be submitted through the EFMP office or the Wounded Warrior Bn.
