The School District of Philadelphia’s Office of Capital Programs (OCP) is requesting proposals from qualified Energy Services Companies (ESCO’s) to provide building upgrades in support of a pilot GESA project.
The objective of this RFP is to solicit proposals for a project to assist the Owner to become as energy efficient as possible through installation of energy or water conservation measures, upgrades, and implementation of optimal operation and maintenance procedures. The Owner wishes to implement the proposed comprehensive energy project on an energy performance contract basis. Only projects which have a return of investment (of less than 20 years), and reduce real energy consumption, and are funded under a guaranteed performance basis will be considered.
The Project Goals include, but are not limited to: (1) improving comfort conditions and indoor air quality; (2) replacing and/or upgrading old and/or inefficient systems; (3) improving utilization of technology; (4) upgrading air conditioning systems where applicable; (5) collecting and managing building/facility information in “real time”; (6) minimizing financial and technical risk; (7) establishing current base usage for energy (oil, gas and electricity, etc.); (8) reducing energy usage; and (9) reducing operating costs.
