Request for Partners: Greenhouse Gas Reduction Fund (GGRF)

Friday, July 28, 2023

DOEE solicits partnership applications from eligible entities (called “Applicant” or “Applicants”). The goal of this Request for Partners (RFP) is to identify partners to reduce or avoid greenhouse gas emissions by scaling up the deployment of solar energy projects and delivering the benefits of affordable, resilient, and clean solar energy to low-income and disadvantaged communities in the District of Columbia.

Through this competitive application, DOEE seeks partners to provide technical expertise, subscriber enrollment, data management, grants management, financial models, outreach, education, workforce development, project siting, project management, enabling infrastructure upgrades, utility services, regulatory development, and advocacy under the US EPA Greenhouse Gas Reduction Fund (GGRF) program Zero-Emissions Technologies category and Solar for All. The application will benefit the District in scaling up the deployment of solar energy through both community solar and rooftop solar for income eligible residents. It will also increase the training of District residents from underserved communities for local, green jobs that are in line with the U.S. Department of Labor and U.S. Department of Commerce’s Good Jobs Principles, including prevailing wages, strong benefits, and safe working conditions.
