Please provide a brief description of the renewable energy project you are seeking

The Kent County Water Authority (KCWA) is requesting proposals from qualified, renewable energy companies to design, install and provide long-term operations and maintenance for on-site solar solutions for its new (to-be-constructed) headquarters located at 51 Technology Way, West Greenwich, RI.  It is the goal of KCWA to be powered 100% from newly developed renewable energy sources, to utilize renewable energy – to the extent possible – to reduce KCWA utility costs, and to provide the long-term benefits, both environmental and financial, to its ratepayers.  KCWA seeks both proposals covering all options, including but not limited to turnkey purchase, PPA and other proposed transactions.  It is the preference of KCWA to retain the RECs produced from the project.
