Interested parties are asked to submit written comments to CleanEnergyRFP@gmail.com by March 27, 2015. Respondents should observe the following guidelines when preparing comments:

  • Respondents should offer specific comments and be detailed when proposing modifications. The soliciting parties will be best able to consider comments that cite specific sections of the Draft RFP and offer complete alternative language.
