Defense Logistics Agency Energy held the second of two industry day events Feb. 5 to bring together industry representatives and potential contractors to discuss power purchase agreements for two Army installations.

Members of DLA Energy Electricity, Renewables and Energy Savings Performance Contract Branch II, in conjunction with Fort Detrick Directorate of Public Works representatives, met with representatives of 13 energy companies to discuss solicitation requirements for a 12-megawatt solar production facility to be built on an 84-acre site at U.S. Army Garrison Fort Detrick, Md.

“These events are valuable opportunities for industry representatives to tour the proposed sites, meet the government team responsible for spearheading the project effort, and to ask specific questions about the solicitation and project opportunity,” said Pam Griffith, DLA Energy Installation Energy director.

“The goal is to ensure industry views these opportunities worthy of their time, effort and investment,” she added.

Requirements will be awarded for a 25-year power purchase agreement for the purchase of energy generated from the solar array. The project will provide almost 10 percent of the post’s overall energy requirements through renewable energy, reducing the Army post’s reliance on fossil fuels.

The first industry day event at Fort Drum, N.Y., Jan. 25 drew more than 40 industry representatives who were briefed by members of the Army Energy Initiatives Task Force, Fort Drum personnel and the local industrial development agency about a power purchase agreement for electricity generated by a biomass generation facility to be built on the post.

The event also allowed attendees the opportunity to tour two installation substations, the Greyfield site and proposed transmission path. The solicitation is scheduled to close in March.
