The Army’s RCI Resident Utility Policy is based on the OSD policy to provide incentives to residents to conserve energy. The partnership between the Army and private developers supports this effort by providing incentives to occupants of privatized housing to decrease utility consumption and save energy.

The Villages of Benning Utility Conservation Program uses the current consumption method which is similar to many other Army installations. The difference at Fort Benning is that a 10% high/low buffer is used in the calculation with a $25 threshold.

What is Energy Conservation?
Energy conservation usually involves changes in habits and other no-cost actions, such as turning off lights when not in use, reducing hot water heater temperatures, car-pooling and combining shopping trips. It is one of the cheapest, cleanest ways to reduce energy use, energy prices, and pollution, helping to extend our nation’s energy supplies.
How Will I Know That My Meter Is No Longer Working?
Both electrical and gas meters are very similar to a battery in a watch. When the watch battery is dying, it either slows down making you late for your next appointment or it will stop completely and make you really late! A meter that is dying will also either slow down and show a decrease in consumption or it will stop and show no further consumption. This will result in you noticing a higher than expected refund amount. A failing meter will not result in a higher bill.
