The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and Army Energy Initiatives Task Force select Constellation for geothermal PPA task order.
Constellation is among five companies selected by The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers for competing and awarding PPA task orders using geothermal technology.
In May 2013, The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Engineering and Support Center, Huntsville, working with the Army Energy Initiatives Task Force (EITF), awarded Indefinite Delivery Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ) Multiple Award Task Order Contracts (MATOC) for geothermal technology to support renewable energy on Defense Department installations.
Individual MATOC awards are being staggered by technology starting with geothermal. Announcement of awards for the remaining technologies, solar, wind and biomass, are anticipated for staggered release through the end of calendar year 2013.
The total amount for all awards under the Renewable and Alternative Energy Power Production for DoD Installations MATOC will not exceed $7 billion. The MATOC will be used to procure reliable, locally generated, renewable and alternative energy through power purchase agreements (PPA). The $7 billion capacity would be expended for PPAs to procure energy over a period of 30 years or less from renewable energy plants that are designed, financed, constructed, operated and maintained by contractors using private sector financing.
