The Shreveport Airport Authority intends to issue a Request for Proposal (RFP) at some future time for renewable energy generation opportunities on Shreveport Airport property. The Authority is particularly interested in solar photovoltaic generation but other technically and economically feasible technologies may also be included.
A study by NREL estimates the annual capacity factor of fixed tilt covered parking at 15.3% and for one-axis tracking at 19.4%. Specifically, the SHV objectives are:
- Maximize the financial benefits of the opportunity
- Maximize the land opportunity for the development of renewable generation on the specified installation.
-Reduce the SHV carbon footprint.
-Purchase power and/or energy at a lower cost than current cost to generate power.
In order for the Airport Authority to develop a succinct RFP, we seek to identify responsible sources and obtain information regarding renewable opportunities and risks associated with this specific installation. The results of this Request for Information will assist in developing Requests for Proposal (RFP) to be issued at a later date.
A copy of the full RFI is attached.
Responses to the RFI are due on 2 January 2014, by 2:00 PM EST. LATE RESPONSES WILL NOT BE ACCEPTED. Packages may be sent via email to:
