The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, through its Engineering and Support Center in Huntsville, Ala., has issued a request for proposals (RFP) for $7 billion in total contract capacity to procure locally generated renewable energy through power purchase agreements.
The $7 billion capacity would be expended for the purchase of energy over a period of up to 30 years. The power would be purchased from renewable energy plants that are constructed and operated by contractors using private-sector financing.Â
The contracts are expected to help the U.S. Army meet its goal of 1 GW of renewable energy by 2025, says Secretary of the Army John M. McHugh.
The solicitation is available here. A pre-proposal conference is scheduled for later this month.
