Late last week, DLA Energy issued a solicitation for the “procurement of Energy from solar and wind renewable resources and conventional power” located at Fort Hood, TX. This presents a major opportunity for an energy company to service the electrical energy requirements of the largest active duty post for the Army, which has peak energy demands of approximately 110 MW. Essentially, the solicitation calls for a contractor to (i) provide “all labor, material and capital to design, build, own, operate and maintain” a solar renewable energy generation system located on Ft. Hood; and (ii) to “construct, operate and maintain a facility offsite, which is able to deliver renewable energy generated from wind turbines to” Ft. Hood. In turn, the Installation will purchase renewable energy and conventional electricity from the successful offeror. The period of performance may be up to 30 years. Given our prior efforts, focus and representation of developers of renewable energy projects on military bases and utility privatization contractors, we are well positioned to help any potential offeror navigate through the idiosyncrasies of federal government contracting in an efficient and effective manner. Please contact us with any questions about this opportunity.
