Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory Requests On-Site Solar Photovoltaic Proposals

March 2, 2009

The Department of Energy’s (DOE) Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory (PPPL) in New Jersey issued a request for proposals (RFP) through the Defense Energy Support Center (DESC) for a solar power purchase agreement (PPA).  

The RFP identifies the potential for rooftop and carport photovoltaic systems at PPPL with a combined capacity of up to 1,300 kilowatts. The RFP seeks fixed-price bids for a 10-year PPA contract. It also includes a 10-year license between the solar developer and DOE to provide access to the rooftops and/or carports.  

Technical proposals are due April 2, 2009. A deadline for price bids has yet to be determined. The final contract is expected to be awarded by September 2009.  

View the RFP and learn more about the response process. The FedBizOpps solicitation number is SP060009R0401.  

This RFP follows a request for information (RFI) issued in October 2008 that identified PPPL, along with 10 other DOE sites, as a prime opportunity for on-site renewable energy projects.
