GSA seeks solar developer for Multi-Site Power Purchase Agreement in California and Nevada

U.S. General Services Administration (GSA) has issued a request for proposal (RFP) for a power purchase agreement (PPA) as part of its Federal Aggregated Solar Procurement Pilot.

Federal Aggregated Solar Procurement Pilot is a strategic sourcing project that combines several small to mid-size photovoltaic (PV) installation opportunities within northern California and northern Nevada into a single procurement.

The project will be developed in nine locations in northern California and northern Nevada:

  • Region 5 Regional Office Building in Vallejo, Calif. (U.S. Forest Service),
  • Robert F. Peckham Federal Building in San Jose, Calif. (GSA),
  • John F. Shea Federal Building in Santa Rosa, Calif. (GSA),
  • Federal Building at 2800 Cottage Way in Sacramento, Calif. (GSA),
  • National Archives in San Bruno, Calif. (GSA),
  • U.S. Geological Survey Campus in Menlo Park, Calif. (GSA),
  • James R. Browning U.S. Courthouse in San Francisco, Calif. (GSA),
  • Clifton Young Federal Building in Reno, Nev. (GSA), and
  • the Carson City Federal Building in Carson City, Nev. (GSA).

Under this PPA, the developer will install and operate the PV systems, spanning nine sites controlled by multiple federal agencies, and sell power by the kilowatt- hour back to the federal government. Systems will be a mixture of rooftop, ground-mounted, and parking lot canopies. The initial contract term is 10 years with an option for an additional 10 years.

The Federal Aggregated Solar Procurement Pilot is one of six programs selected as part of the White House GreenGov Spotlight Communities Program administered by the Council on Environmental Quality.

Interested parties must submit their proposals on before 29 May 2015. The contract is expected to be awarded in summer 2015 with a requirement that the PV systems be installed and operational by the end of 2016.
