RFI: District of Columbia seeks information on wind, solar projects, RECs

The Department of General Services (DGS) of the District of Columbia has released a Request for Information (RFI) for wind and/or solar projects that can deliver 150,000-250,000 MWh of electricity and associated Renewable Energy Credits (RECs) per year to its facilities located in the District of Columbia.  Purchase is expected to begin in early 2015 but could be earlier depending on when full commercial operation commences and the District’s retail power supply arrangements at that time.  DGS will consider an electricity contract of up to 20 years.  DGS is not asking for proposals at this stage—only what is requested in the RFI, which is not extensive. RFI responses are due March 5, 2013, at 12pm (midnight) ET.

DGS has engaged CustomerFirst Renewables (CFR) to help direct this procurement effort.  CFR is a renewable energy integrator that works with large end-users to help them purchase power from or own renewable energy projects utilizing an end-to-end process to ensure the project comes on-line and operates successfully.  CFR’s support will include economic analysis, proposal review, due diligence, and contract solicitation and negotiation.  CFR anticipates requesting proposals from RFI respondents on or about April 1, 2013.  For a copy of the RFI, send an email with contact information to Kevin Rackstraw at DGS-RFI-Feb2013@customerfirstrenewables.com.
