The New South Wales Office of Environment and Heritage has established a panel of energy service suppliers to provide rooftop solar photovoltaic (PV) installation and solar power solutions through Power Purchase Agreements (PPA's).
A PPA is an arrangement in which a solar service provider designs, builds, owns, operates, monitors, and maintains a solar PV system, and a customer agrees to site the system on its roof or elsewhere on its property and purchase the system's electric output from the solar services provider for a predetermined period and price.
The panel may be used by agencies and local government customers to selectively tender and purchase rooftop solar PV installations targeting a wide variety of government buildings such as schools, TAFEs, offices, art facilities, hospitals, correctional centres, courts and police stations. There may also be additional opportunities to tender for projects targeting local government infrastructure such as treatment plants and administration buildings.
Additional details on the panel is available at: https://www.environment.nsw.gov.au/government/solar.htm
The Applicant must complete all steps of the application process by answering all mandatory questions. Once all questions have been answered, submit your application online.
*It is recommended that the applicant submit the application from a generic/proxy email address (such as tenders@###.com) that the relevant people in your organisation will have access to. Tendering opportunities will be sent to the email address that submitted the application.
