The purpose of this Request for Proposal (“RFP”) is to solicit pricing proposals from solar PV manufacturers and distributors for solar modules and inverters for use by solar installers participating in Phase 2 of the Solarize Philly campaign. The Philadelphia Energy Authority (“PEA”) is interested in creating a special pricing agreement for these items to yield meaningful price reductions in the cost to Solarize Philly participants.
This is the second RFP for this program, the first which was awarded and executed in 2017, with pricing agreement that was in place through the end of the calendar year. The federal tariff on imported solar cells and modules has resulted in market volatility. This RFP aims to create a new pricing agreement that would be in place for Phase 2 of Solarize Philly.
The selected vendor(s), if any, will serve as the primary equipment manufacturer or distributor for the Solarize Philly Program, an will be recommended for any additional commercial or industrial solar projects supported by the Philadelphia Energy Authority.
Response Deadline: March 15, 2018 5 p.m. local time
