Request for Proposals

25 kW Solar Photovoltaic Array

Applied Technologies Center

General Information

The Board of Trustees of Community College District No. 505, Parkland College, Counties of Champaign, Coles, Dewitt, Edgar, Ford, Iroquois, Livingston, McLean, Moultrie, Piatt, Vermilion and the State of Illinois, requests proposals from qualified solar photovoltaic installation professionals for design and installation of a new 25 KW solar photovoltaic ballasted array atop the TPO-covered roof of the Parkland College Applied Technology Center building located at 2400 W. Bradley Avenue, Champaign, Illinois, 61821.

Overview

Parkland College is a two-year community college of higher education. It is a non-profit entity supported by State and local funding including student tuition and fees. Administrative offices and most records are located at 2400 W. Bradley Ave., Champaign, IL 61821. The college is comprised of approximately 1,000,000 square feet of assignable space and 260 acres of campus sites, and has an enrollment of over 14,000 students.

Project History

Parkland College was constructed beginning in the late 1960’s and opened for class in the fall of 1973. Since that time there have been several additions to the original structure, both in attached structures and in standalone facilities. The College is currently completing a Campus Master Plan that has included several building additions, internal remodeling, improving mechanical systems and upgrading existing systems from improved efficiencies in areas of sustainability and reductions in greenhouse gases.

The College has installed a solar PV system on the Noel Agricultural facility in 2014. In keeping with the College’s intent to work towards reducing electrical purchases and reducing the carbon footprint, a second solar PV system will be installed on the Applied Technology Center facility. This facility was opened for classes in 2012 and is used almost entirely for Engineering Science and Technologies functions.

Installation and operation of the photovoltaic array are expected to serve an educational role for the College. As part of that effort, the installation team will collaborate with college personnel to allow site visits and photography of the installation as well as provide clear documentation of the system and performance characteristics to help support use of the system as a teaching tool.

Scope of Services

The chosen supplier/installer will provide the scope of work, but not be limited to the following:

Schematic Design and Specification
