Robins Air Force Base contributed $2.75 billion to the Georgia economy during fiscal 2015, according to a new report.

In fiscal 2014, Robins' workforce was at 22,259, including 13,603 civilians, 6,093 military members and 2,563 other employees.

Robins also paid out about $1.31 billion in salaries last year, compared to $1.3 billion in fiscal 2014.
The largest portion for 2015 -- $910 million -- went to civilians working on base, while military members accounted for $381 million, and nonfederal civilians and contract employees accounted for just above $15 million.
The base also awarded $5 billion in contracts during fiscal 2015. Of that total, more than $400 million went to Georgia companies and nearly half -- $199.5 million -- went to Cobb County-based firms, the report said.
The other top counties by awards were Houston ($157.8 million), Fulton ($19.6 million), DeKalb ($6.4 million), and Bibb ($5.3 million).
The top five contracts were awarded to contractors Boeing, Northrop Grumman, Lockheed Martin, Raytheon, and General Atomics.
The base spent $27.5 million on utilities last year, and most of it -- about $22.3 million -- went toward electricity bills.
