We are excited to announce the publication of RFP ONE — solar + storage implementation services for Throggs Neck Volunteer Ambulance Corps and Birch Family Services.


With RFP ONE, Solar One will fund solar + storage for two community facilities- the Throggs Neck Volunteer Ambulance Corps and Birch Family Services.

A Respondents’ E-Conference will be held on Monday, December 18th at 2:30 PM. Click here to register for the E-Conference. All questions before and after the E-Conference must be submitted using the procedure outlined in the RFP. All questions and answers will be made available to the List of Qualified Vendors. The E-Conference will be recorded and available for all of those who are not available to join live.

There will be a site walk for each community facility that will allow Qualified Vendors to gather additional information and verify site data presented in the RFP. Each Qualified Vendor may send up to two representatives from their firm to participate in the site walk. Participation in the site walk is mandatory in order to submit a proposal, and proposals must take into account the S1 concept design as well as any new data gathered on site. All items discussed and discovered on site will be made available to all Bidders.
