MassCEC : RFP - Solar and Energy Storage Site Assessments

Posted: June 28, 2016 - 10:51 / FOA-RFI-RFP

MassCEC is seeking a qualified firm or firms to perform site assessments and evaluate the financial benefits that can accrue to owners of manufacturing facilities in Massachusetts that install solar photovoltaic systems combined with energy storage systems (“solar plus energy storage systems”). Solar plus energy storage systems reduce energy costs for manufacturers while preserving high power quality and business continuity, while also helping manufacturers meet greenhouse gas reduction or corporate sustainability goals.

The selected firm(s) will produce a report quantifying the estimated potential benefits of such systems in the aggregate, anonymized as necessary, to MassCEC.  Given the uncertainty around solar policy in the state, the Consultant would be asked to complete analyses on a range of potential installation configurations at manufacturing facilities (ie: with existing solar arrays, added storage only, or new solar plus storage).

MassCEC will coordinate access to the MassCEC-selected manufacturing facilities on behalf of selected Consultants.

MassCEC expects to retain 1-4 firms to conduct evaluation projects.

MassCEC currently estimated completing a minimum of 15-30 site assessments. Reponses to this RFP will be assessed on the value of services offered, along with other criteria as described in the RFP.

Interested parties should carefully read the request for proposals and additional attachments.

**Proposals are due Sunday, July 10th.**

If you have any questions or would like to speak to a staff member, please email Emily Izzo at eizzo@masscec.com.
