PROFESSIONAL SERVICES FOR PROCUREMENT ASSISTANCE
TO SECURE A SOLAR POWER AND ENERGY STORAGE PROVIDER
ATHERTON TOWN CENTER
The Town of Atherton intends to retain a qualified professional Consultant to assist in the Town in securing a Power Purchase Agreement (PPA) or other financial agreement to provide solar power and solar energy storage for the Atherton Town Center Project.
The Town is currently constructing a new Town Center complex including a new Town Administration and Police Service building, a new Library and associated ancillary structures, parking and public spaces. The Town Center will also serve as the Towns Emergency Operations Center. The complex includes an aggregate of 44,603 gross square feet. The Town Center buildings were initially designed to include a photo-voltaic and micro-grid system. However, due to costs associated with direct purchase and installation, the Town deferred the purchase and elected to provide accommodations in the buildings for future installation.
As a municipality, the Town is not eligible for certain incentives available to non-public entities. As such, the Town wishes to partner with a Power Services Provider that can take advantage of all available incentives, install and maintain the system. The Town is seeking a consultant to assist in finding and contracting with that partner as well as reviewing project documents, overseeing installation, commissioning and validating system performance.
The work to be completed includes, but is not limited to developing technical requirements, preparing the Request for Proposals for a Power Services Provider, managing the RFP process, reviewing proposals and qualifications, assist in evaluation and selection of a provider, review project documents, and oversee installation, commissioning and validation of system performance.
The Town is a participating agency with Peninsula Clean Energy (PCE). PCE supports the Town’s efforts in seeking a solar energy provider.
