With Pfister Energy Inc as its solar construction partner, Infinity Development Partners of San Antonio, TX. has been awarded a solar technology contract for projects on U.S. Army facilities located throughout the US, including Alaska and Hawaii, U.S. Territories and the Marshall Islands.
The Army’s Energy Initiatives Task Force (EITF) and the Corps of Engineers, Engineering and Support center, Huntsville, AL established a $7 Billion MATOC primarily to fund renewable and alternative energy projects greater than 10 Megawatts.
This acquisition supports the EITF mission for 10MW and higher but may also serve other Federal requirements for smaller scale renewable and alternative energy development.
The contracts will support the DOD’s achievement of its congressionally mandated goal of 25% of production of energy from renewable sources by 2025.
The most recent round of awards added several small businesses, including Infinity Development and Pfister Energy to the pool of qualified contractors eligible to bid on future solar technology project task orders.
In order to qualify for a MATOC award, a company must pass requirements set that show experience and quality, including having installed solar projects of 2 MW or greater. Candidates were evaluated also on financial capability, management approach, past performance and price. There are more than 180 Army, Army Reserve and Army National Guard installations that may be a part of the initiative.
