Marines & Navy RECP (Resident Energy Conservation Program)


The Office of the Secretary of Defense enacted a policy promoting energy conservation and utility billing for privatized housing in all military services. Pursuant to that policy, the Department of Navy (DoN) has an interest and responsibility in conserving natural resources. The Resident Energy Conservation Program (RECP) was designed to encourage residents to conserve and become more responsible for their energy usage and consumption. The DoN is also taking steps to conserve energy in their daily operations.

The RECP’s goal is to reduce energy usage which is both better for the environment and you. Dollars saved through conservation efforts equates to more money that may be used to improve existing homes and community facilities. Conservation not only benefits us locally but also decreases our nation’s dependence on foreign oil.

Minol USA is a third-party utility billing company that is contracted to manage your community’s billing program. We submeter more than 75% of our nation’s military bases and provide services for 73,000 military homes. Minol USA does not determine your community’s utility rates. Our team measures consumption and bill accordingly based on the guidelines provided by the OSD.

Minol USA  thanks you for your cooperation and participation in this important program. We encourage you to use one of the links below for additional information.

In September 1998, OSD issued a policy to transfer responsibility for the consumption of utilities from privatized (PPV) housing projects to residents. Research shows that residents use 20+% less in utilities when they are directly responsible for utility Usage. The RECP helps to bring PPV utility usage in line with usage in private communities, and results in savings that will be reinvested to improve PPV community quality of life.

Each month a utility usage target will be established based on homes of similar or same plan types and size. A 10% buffer is then set above and below the normal use. This is the Normal Use Range. Your monthly utility consumption statement will show how your usage compares to that usage target.

Your statement will also show whether you fall within the utility usage buffer zone, if you are eligible for a rebate or have a payment due.
