REQUEST FOR PROPOSALS (RFP) #13339

for

Conservation Potential Assessment

The City of Seattle, Seattle City Light Department (“SCL”), seeks to engage a consultant to provide consulting services.

The purpose of issuing this Request for Proposal (RFP) is to solicit proposals from qualified firms to provide a Conservation Potential Assessment (CPA) to quantify the amount, the timing, and the cost of electric conservation resources available within the Seattle City Light service territory. Beginning in 2010, City Light has complied with Washington State’s Initiative-937 (RCW 19.285 and WAC 194-37-070). This Energy Efficiency Resource Standard requires the Department to set a target for all cost effective conservation to be achieved in the subsequent two year period. This target is established by using methodology consistent with the Northwest Power and Planning Council’s 6th Power Plan and shall supersede the 2014 CPA.

This solicitation is divided into two distinct Phases. The term of the contract shall extend from the date of execution by the Superintendent of Seattle City Light, or designee, through December 31, 2016. Seattle City Light (SCL) has identified a budget for this project to be $250,000 for Phase I, and an additional $250,000 for Phase II, which is subject to approval by the Seattle City Council.  SCL_RFP#13339 is for Phase I only and the total contract amount is not to exceed $250,000. SCL may at its option amend the original Contract for scope, time and funding.

SCL is seeking qualified firms to provide the following:

The term of the contract shall extend from the date of execution by the Superintendent of Seattle City Light, or designee, through December 2016. City Light has identified a budget for this project but estimates the contract to be $250,000.
