Indiana Borough officials said late Thursday that the Pennsylvania Solar Center is conducting a request for proposals from qualified solar developers for the Indiana Wastewater Treatment Plant, located south of the borough in Center Township.

Borough officials said the primary goal of this RFP is to identify a solar developer to install a quality solar energy system to save money on electricity bills.

“To participate, qualified solar developers must submit, or have submitted within two calendar years, a signed Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with the Pennsylvania Solar Center,” according to a news release posted on the indianaboro.com website.

“Please sign and return via email to amelia@pasolarcenter.org along with a NABCEP PVIP certification at your earliest convenience,” the borough is asking. “The NABCEP PVIP certification can be held by any member of your team, or a subcontractor who is designated to perform the installation.”

As posted by borough spokesman Kyle Mudry, “the GET Solar team will provide interested developers (with a signed MOU and copy of NABCEP PVIP) access to a secure One Drive folder with additional information about the project site. A site walkthrough will be conducted on Thursday, Nov. 16th at 1 p.m.”

Mudry said all responses to that request for proposals must include a notice of intent and preliminary design, that in turn must be received via email no later than Friday, Dec. 15 at 11:59 p.m.

“All RFP responses should be submitted via email to amelia@pasolarcenter.org with the subject line: ‘RFP Submission for Indiana WWTP from (Developer Name),'” Mudry said. “If you have any questions about this RFP, the MOU, or the GET Solar process, please reach out via email to contact-us@indianaboro.com or amelia@pasolarcenter.org.”
