1-3 MW Solar RFP Issued in Palo Alto, California

electricTowerThe City of Palo Alto Utilities (CPAU) has issued a request for proposals (RFP) for 1-3 MW (AC) in order to create a CPAU-branded Community Solar Program.

The CPAU has stated that its primary objectives for such program are to help facilitate reaching the City of Palo Alto’s target of meeting 4% of its energy needs from local solar energy by 2023 (from 0.7% in 2013), and to give all CPAU customers – including those who rent and those without sufficient solar access – the opportunity to experience and derive benefit from cost-effective local solar development.

CPAU expects to purchase the full output of electricity produced by a 3rd-party owned, operated, and maintained solar facility resulting from the program and all associated attributes, including renewable energy credits (RECs) and environmental benefits.

All proposals must be delivered no later than 3:00 p.m. (Pacific) on Tuesday, August 12, 2014. Additional information on this RFP can be found by visiting the CPAU website by clicking here or by downloading the RFP here.
