SECTION 1. SUN FOR ALL PROGRAM INTRODUCTION
Thank you for your interest in bidding on the opportunity to install one or more solar photovoltaic (PV) systems for selected finalists with funds from the SUN FOR ALL Solar Empowerment Grant Program. We are pleased you are interested in capturing the energy from the sun to energize your community!
Solar project funding totaling approximately $450,000, as well as some funding from the finalists, is available for installations of less than 0.5 MW for organizations that serve low income and vulnerable populations in Indiana with a preference for applicants in the AEP Energy Indiana & Michigan electric service territory.
The SUN FOR ALL Review and Selection Committee consists of representatives of Environmental and Community Development interests in Indiana, and it has narrowed the list of eligible candidate projects to participate in this RFP for solar contractors. This means that, provided that there are no technical issues identified in this bidding process that would create a significant obstacle for an installation at the sites listed in Appendix A, each of these eligible candidates should proceed with the installation of projects. Due to our limited budget, the listed projects must be bid at not more than +/- 10% of the kWdc presented in the Helioscopes in Appendix A.
This RFP is designed to solicit firm proposals from solar installers (“Installers”) interested in bidding on one or more of these projects.
