The Philadelphia Energy Authority (“PEA”), the Philadelphia Museum of Art (“PMA”) and the City of Philadelphia (the “City,” together with PEA and PMA referred to as the “Administrator”) intends to commence a guaranteed energy savings project (“Project”) for the PMA located at 2600 Benjamin Franklin Parkway, 2525 Pennsylvania Ave, and 2151 Benjamin Franklin Parkway, Philadelphia. The Administrator collectively seek qualified Energy Service Companies (“ESCOs”) to perform under an energy performance contract under the Pennsylvania Guaranteed Energy Savings Act (“GESA”). GESA addresses contracting by municipalities for energy conservation measures in existing buildings.
The Administrator will be requesting proposals for these facilities that will comprehensively reduce energy costs. The ESCO proposals will guarantee savings that can be used to cover operating budget expenses and finance improvements. The ESCO will also implement an Economic Opportunity Plan (“EOP”) in its selection and use of subcontractors and hiring or workers that ensure the employment of an appropriately diverse workforce. This Request for Qualifications (“RFQ”) is the first step in the Administrator’s process of obtaining proposals from qualified ESCOs. Through this RFQ, the Administrator will identify the most qualified respondents to this RFQ, who will be invited to participate in a subsequent Request for Proposals process. The Administrator will only consider proposals from ESCOs that are selected pursuant to this RFQ.
Responses must be received no later than 4:00 P.M. on March 15th, 2017. Responses should be delivered electronically emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org and be no larger than 10MB to ensure delivery.
