PEA – Three Requests for Proposals (RFPs) for Frankford High School Solar Lab: (1) HVAC; (2) Electrical; and (3) Window installation

Philadelphia Energy Authority (PEA) requests proposals for improvements to the solar lab at Frankford High School, located at 5000 Oxford Ave., Philadelphia, PA 19124 and owned by the School District of Philadelphia. PEA is simultaneously issuing three Requests for Proposals for prime contractors for the following:

    1. HVAC to provide adequate climate control and ventilation for this newly repurposed space. The HVAC contractor will be the lead prime contractor for purposes of scheduling and coordination. 
    2. Electrical to create a hands-on learning environment for students to work with solar PV modules and battery systems
    3. Window installation to add natural daylight to the solar lab.

Contractors may respond to one, two or three RFPs but each must be a separate proposal and if a contractor is selected for more than one project, separate contracts may be issued. 

PEA is supporting the renovation and procurement of equipment for the School District of Philadelphia in order to create a solar energy lab for the District’s new Solar Energy Program, a three-year Career and Technical Education program, the first such solar program in Pennsylvania.
