Solar Energy Consulting
Managing a Request-for-Proposal process, upgrading energy efficiency, or addressing a “missing piece” of a project.
SHR Energy Management works closely with clients as a solar energy consultant. Our consulting clients benefit from our extensive experience in the legal, engineering, and financial aspects of solar energy in the Northeast United States.
Managing an RFP Process
Often, public sector and large commercial organizations require a competitive bidding process for major capital investments. This process requires considerable time and puts great demands on internal staff when they try to manage it in-house. SHR Energy Management can manage the end-to-end ‘Request for Proposal’, enabling you to:
SHR Energy Management will proceed through the seven critical steps necessary to develop and objectively manage the process through to completion:
- Develop project specifications to achieve the goals for energy cost reduction and financing.
- Write and distribute the Request for Proposal.
- Administer the RFP (respond to bidder questions/issues/request for site visits.)
- Evaluate all submitted bids, based on predetermined criteria for expense reduction, operating benefits, and quality.
- Recommend the winning bidder(s).
- Secure and structure financing.
- Oversee construction and commissioning.
By working with SHR as an RFP Consultant, our clients enjoy the following benefits:
