Siemens (NYSE: SI) will install and operate energy conversion systems for the National Park Service to manage the power and water consumption of 13 parks and landmarks in the Washington metropolitan area.

The company said Thursday it will implement the measures as part of the $29 million indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity, energy savings performance contract between the Energy Department and Siemens Government Technologies.

NPS aims to utilize these measures to generate energy and water savings and corresponding cost savings in support of the Obama administration’s vision on renewable energy usage across federal agencies, Siemens said.

“As the largest single user of energy in the U.S., the federal government is leading by example through its commitment to improving the energy efficiency of America’s publicly-owned buildings, parks and historic sites, reducing carbon emissions and enhancing the nation’s energy security, ” said Judy Marks, president and CEO of Siemens Government Technologies.

Properties covered under the contract include:

  • National Mall and Memorial Parks
  • Antietam and Manassas National Battlefields
  • Rock Creek Park
  • Wolf Trap National Park for the Performing Arts

The company will install solar panels, irrigation systems, lighting and solar photovoltaic technologies and smart controls at the landmarks.

Siemens noted that it will work with NPS repair or replace mechanical systems as the agency aims to mitigate impacts to historic sight-lines and daily operations.
