The Plumas-Sierra Rural Electric Cooperative (PSREC) has issued a request for qualifications (RFQ) from engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) firms interested in participating in a 2 MW (AC) solar energy project at the Sierra Army Depot (SIAD) in Herlong, Calif.
The energy cooperative plans to issue requests for proposals to the five best qualified respondents.
The SIAD PV system will be a ground-mounted, grid-tied array located on a 30-acre abandoned landfill site that was last used in 1965. PSREC says the planned system is to produce a minimum of 4 GWh of electricity during an average year given typical weather data for the site.
The EPC contractor is required to provide all labor, material, permits, supplies and equipment to design, furnish, construct and commission the PV system, including all necessary devices and connections between inverter and main electrical service at 480 V located at the boundary of the site.
EPC contractors have until July 31 to submit their qualifications for the project. For more information on the RFQ, including detailed requirements, evaluation criteria and contact information, click here.
