Puget Sound Energy has issued a request for proposals (RFP) to provide up to five schools in PSE's service area with a 1 kW-5 kW photovoltaic solar system. The systems will be awarded to schools that can successfully implement educational programs to students, as well as offer educational outreach to the surrounding communities.
‘The solar demonstration projects are geared to give our schools and the surrounding communities the ability to learn more about the viability of solar generation here in the Pacific Northwest,’ says Kimberly Harris, executive vice president and corporate resource officer at PSE.
The installations will include a Web-based data monitoring system, enabling students to monitor real-time system performance and to download historical data, and an interactive touch-screen kiosk that displays real-time data about the amount of electricity generated by the school's solar array.
Questions about the RFP and bid submittals may be sent to Micah Haman at firstname.lastname@example.org or by visiting PSE.com.
