The city of Rancho Cordova, California, has issued a Request for Proposals (RFP) for the purchase and installation of LED streetlights. This project is a result of a comprehensive system-wide survey and analysis of the city’s existing streetlighting system. The city seeks proposals from qualified vendors to supply a turn-key retrofit for approximately 1,800 existing streetlights.
The goals of the project are to reduce energy consumption and capital costs by installing LED streetlight fixtures. Additionally, the city will utilize rebates and incentive programs from the Sacramento Municipal Utility District (SMUD). In addition to supplying and installing LED streetlights, the selected contractor will also review and finalize all energy cost savings to ensure accuracy of city estimates, and prepare and submit rebate filings with the SMUD.
Existing streetlights targeted for replacement including 100 watt, 150 watt, 200 watt, 250 watt, and 400 watt high pressure sodium (HPS) and mercury vapor streetlights. According to the bid document, bids are limited to LED fixtures manufactured by Cree Lighting (formerly BetaLED) of Durham, North Carolina and Leotek Electronics or Milpitas, California. However, bidders may also submit proposals for alternative manufacturers, as long as the proposed alternative meets the stated photometric and performance specifications.
A mandatory pre-bid meeting was held on October 13, 2013.
Complete bids must be submitted to the city of Rancho Cordova, by Tuesday, October 1, 2013 at 4:00 p.m. Questions about the project may be submitted to David Gassaway at firstname.lastname@example.org. The complete bid document can be found here.
