Author: DCSEU Staff Published: 9/8/2021 DCSEU DCSEU Releases Solar for All RFP to Bring More Community Solar to the District The DCSEU recently released a Request for Proposal (RFP) for the FY 2022 Solar for All Community Renewable Energy Facilities (CREF). The DCSEU is soliciting bids from contractors and development teams to install community renewable energy facilities (CREFs) that will enable the DCSEU and the Department of Energy & Environment (DOEE) to extend the benefits of solar power to income-qualified District residents – including seniors, veterans, and residents and families with limited incomes. Selected bidders will receive incentives to install solar at community solar host sites with all output designated to income-qualified residents. This allows residents who live in multifamily buildings or whose roofs are not suitable for solar to access savings from Solar for All. By the end of FY 2021, through Solar For All, the DCSEU expects to have installed enough community solar to cut electricity costs in half for up to 5,800 families for the next 15 years. In the near future, the DCSEU will also release an additional Solar For All RFP that will cover the installation of rooftop solar to income qualified District residents in single family homes.
