Bid Title: Farmington Electric Utility System (FEUS) Solar Project, 18-115982
Category: Request For Proposals
Status: Open

Description:
The City of Farmington (City) is requesting proposals from qualified community solar project developers (Offerors) to develop a small-scale solar photovoltaic (PV) electric generating project to be called the Solar Project (“the Project”).

FEUS is a municipal electric system serving approximately 45,000 metered customers over 1,718 square miles within the City of Farmington and surrounding area.  FEUS has 154 MW of installed generation capacity and purchases 46 MW of power.  It is a summer peaking utility with a system peak load of 194 MW.  The FEUS transmission and distribution system comprises 2,670 miles of which 248 miles are high voltage transmission lines and 2,422 miles are distribution lines.  FEUS has a Public Utility Commission serving as an advisory board and is governed by the Farmington City Council. Since FEUS provides electric service to customers beyond five miles of Farmington’s city limits, FEUS must notify the New Mexico Public Regulatory Commission (NMPRC) and the governing boards of San Juan County and Rio Arriba County prior to implementing general electric retail rate increases so that these bodies and affected customers may present views, comments and data regarding such rate increases to Farmington.  

The City Council, at its sole discretion, will approve, and provide funding, for any contract resulting from this solicitation prior to contract execution.  The City Council may decide not to approve and fund a contract, even if recommended by the Evaluation Committee. As such, the City cannot guarantee that this solicitation will result in an award of a contract.
