California public power utility Glendale Water & Power has issued a request for proposals for the development of a plan to increase solar penetration and develop additional distributed energy resources.
Glendale Water & Power is soliciting proposals for the following three categories of services:
Category 1: Develop a plan to achieve the goal of having at least 10% of GWP customers
adopt solar and energy storage systems by 2027, and to develop additional
demand management measures, with a minimum total peak dispatchable
and peak-load-reducing capacity of 100 MW.
Category 2: Calculate the estimated dispatchable capacity and demand reduction that
can be achieved through the plan developed in Category 1.
Category 3: Complete an analysis of the benefits and cost of the plan developed in Category 1. The analysis must include: direct and indirect economic benefits and costs, as well as environmental, societal, and other noneconomic benefits and costs; and direct and indirect impacts to low- and
moderate-income households. If the analysis concludes any negative impacts on low-and-moderate-income households, the consultant will include program options to mitigate the impact.
The city may award each category of services separately, or as one contract.
Proposals are due by Feb. 10, 2023.
