EPC Services for Solar in Cuyahoga County, Ohio
Enerlogics Services, LLC (Enerlogics) is issuing this Request for Proposals (RFP) for engineering, procurement, and construction (EPC) services for a series of solar projects in Cuyahoga County, Ohio.
Since 2014, Enerlogics and its development partners have been working with various entities in Cuyahoga County to enable the redevelopment of brownfield sites into productive sources of solar generation. The County of Cuyahoga Government has negotiated a multifaceted energy supply agreement with Cleveland Public Power (CPP), including 4 MWs of solar generation, with formal review and approval slated for late summer 2016. In parallel, Enerlogics and its development partners have identified a series of potential sites to support the initial 4 MWs of solar generation (Initial Project).
Funding for the Project is being provided by the Cuyahoga County Clean Energy Financing Hub , a public/private financing partnership. Under this funding structure, one or more project special purpose entities (SPE(s)) are established, with a master development agreement between the SPE(s) and Enerlogics.
Accordingly, Enerlogics is seeking a qualified EPC services partner for the design, engineering, procurement, and construction of ground-mount solar PV generation systems at one or more of the project sites.
