2021 All Source RFP bidders, the PGE RFP team has made some adjustments to Appendix M – Technical Specifications, to correctly accommodate for project sizes bidding into the All-Source RFP. Specifically, the changes have been made to the energy storage specification (M4-01-01), sections 3.2.3 & 3.2.4, to reflect the fact that project sizes will vary from different bidders.
Additionally, the documents and deliverables table (M1-01-02-01) now has the appropriate table for submittals in that section.
Lastly, the following changes have been made to the document which address some irregularities and simplify the specification:
- Changes to the approved suppliers for the wind equipment – a couple of suppliers removed and added.
- Updates to the process data section to include some items for renewables.
- Placeholder sections for the CAD standards and Project Management sections.
