RFP Questions & Answers
Q: Can you clarify how financing costs should be factored into the price per watt. We have different financing providers that impact the cost to the customer differently but also are not able to lock in a specific rate or financing cost.
A: Thank you for your question. The financing costs should not be factored into the price per watt for the same reasons you mentioned. Therefore, for the price per watt tiered pricing schedule, we are looking for the cash price per watt amount only.
Q: Is there any further guidance on format spacing page length etc. for the RFP?
A: While no specific formatting is required, bids are typically single spaced and around 10-15 pages, not including attachments and exhibits.
