PITTSBURGH, US: Diversified industrial manufacturer Eaton Corporation has secured an Indefinite Job Order Contract from the United States Postal Service (USPS) Eastern Facilities Service Office (EFSO) for energy conservation projects at postal facilities in North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania and South Carolina.


The scope of this initiative includes energy engineering, audits and implementation of energy conservation opportunities including lighting retrofits, lighting controls, minor heating, ventilating and air conditioning improvements, and compressed air systems improvements. “As a global leader in power management, Eaton is well positioned to help large and complex organizations like the USPS become more energy efficient,” said Jerry R. Whitaker, president of Eaton’s Electrical Sector, Americas Region. “The USPS has a long-term commitment to sustainability, and we are pleased to offer innovative solutions and services to help minimize the environmental impact of their operations.”

This contract is one of several recent agreements that Eaton has reached with government organizations, including $8 million in electrical products and services for the San Antonio Military Medical Center on the Fort Sam Houston Army base in Texas and supplying hybrid electric power systems for 35 fuel-efficient shuttle buses purchased by the U.S. General Services Administration for use on U.S. military bases.

The USPS delivers mail throughout the 50 states and U.S. territories. Since 1970, it has been an independent agency under the executive branch of the U.S. Government. The USPS employs more than 650,000 people and 260,000 vehicles, making it the second largest civilian employer in the United States after Wal-Mart, and the world’s largest fleet of civilian vehicles.
