Project Information
Project name: USA: East Providence renewable energy P3s
Project description:

The City of East Providence has issued the request for proposals (RFP) for the P3 with the city and the East Providence School Department.

East Providence wants to procure up to 100% of its maximum annual electricity usage of 10.7million kWh through a third party renewable energy developer that will plan, permit, design, install, finance, operate and maintain one or multiple renewable energy projects to meet this need. The authority may execute more than one agreement. 

East Providence anticipates either directly purchasing and owning the project, or entering into an Net Meter Credit Agreement with the developer.

Bids are due by May 19, 2017, with questions by May 5. A winner is expected in June.

Clean Economy Development is advising the city and the point of contact for the RFP.

The City of Warwick, RI, is also to issue an RFP for the procurement of 3.3million kWh. Both issuers seek to simultaneously issue these RFPs in the event that it creates opportunities to secure most cost effective responses than if each municipality were to individually publish RFPs. East Providence will take into consideration RFP responses that satisfy the annual off-take requirements of both municipalities, should such a response result in a greater economic proposal.
