Design-Build Contract - Solar Photovoltaics (SunPower) FINAL 10-22-10.pdf
Summary: Section 4217.12(a) of the California Government Code authorizes the District to enter into a contract for design and construction of solar facilities on terms the Board determines are in the best interests of the District if the determination is made at a regularly scheduled meeting, public notice of which was given at least two weeks in advance.
On September 28, 2010 the Board of Education authorized staff to engage in negotiations with SunPower Corporation in an effort to draft a mutually acceptable design/build contract for the design, installation, monitoring and support of Photovoltaic Systems at fifty-one (51) District sites. Said authorization was based on a comprehensive analysis of submittals/presentations to a Request for Proposals(RFP) issued August 4, 2010.
Staff has successfully negotiated a contract with SunPower Corporation, Systems for the engineering, design, procurement, construction management, installation, training, monitoring, verification, maintenance, operation and repair of photovoltaic systems with a total capacity of Eleven Thousand, One Hundred Ninety One kilowatts peak (11,191 kWp), produced through photovoltaic systems located a fifty-one (51) sites District-wide for a total price of $65,604,398.00. An analysis of the technology and systems proposed by SunPower, and the performance guarantees established in the contract, projects a thirty (30) year savings to the general fund of approximately $192,531,705. Based on the due diligence exercised in the vendor proposal evaluation process, and in consideration of the delivery and performance protections and enforceability of the proposed contract itself, staff is recommending that the resolution of findings and the contract with SunPower Corporation, Systems be approved.
