The City and County of San Francisco has issued a Request for Proposals (RFP) for LED luminaires with wireless monitoring and control systems. San Francisco owns and maintains approximately 18,500 high pressure sodium (HPS) cobra head streetlight luminaires located throughout the city which will be replaced with LED streetlight luminaires. The dimmable LED luminaires must also include a wireless communication and monitoring system. Proposers will also be responsible for designing the integrated wireless monitoring and control system, and providing testing, lighting analysis, training, and web portal customization to ensure that the system works.
There will be a pre-proposal conference on Thursday, September 9 at 9:00 a.m. The location of the conference is 1145 Market Street, 1st floor conference room, San Francisco, California.
This large-scale LED streetlight replacement program will be funded through local municipal funds, according to Mary Tienken, project manager at the San Francisco Public Utilities Commission. City officials anticipate additional funding and grants will be made available in the future.
Proposals must be submitted by October 22, 2010 at 2:00 p.m. [UPDATED DEADLINE]. The duration of the contract is expected to be two years, with the possibility of an extension, at the city’s discretion, to a third year. Installation of the LED luminaires and control devices will be awarded under a separate contract with the city of San Francisco. All bid specification, documents and addenda are available here.
