Item Title:


DPW Turnkey Solar Power Installation



Suggested Action:


I move that the Mayor and Council authorize the City Administrator to accept the proposal from Altenergy for the design and installation of a Turnkey Solar Power System at the Department of Public Works new facility for an expenditure not to exceed $100,000 pending legal review.



Summary Background:

It the Spring of 2021 the City solicited a Request for Proposal (RFP) seeking firms to provide a Turnkey Solar Power System on the new Department of Public Works (DPW) building. The selected firm will design, permit, install, and commission the construction of a solar power system on the new DPW building. Proposals were received and reviewed and were initially found not to be feasible from the City’s perspective. The City revised the scope of the project, breaking the installation into multiple phases. The responding firms were then given an opportunity to resubmit their proposals based on the revised scope. Altenergy’s proposal was the most responsive and responsible.


Next Steps:

Issue a Purchase Order and schedule installation.


Fiscal Impact:

Not to exceed $100,000.


City Administrator Comments:
