EDC Seeks Solar, Wind Developers for Freshkills Park
The New York City Economic Development Corporation (“NYCEDC”) has issued an open request for proposals (RFP) seeking proposals to own, design, construct, and operate
utility-scale solar and wind energy installations on 75 acres at Staten Island's former Fresh Kills Landfill, being redeveloped as Freshkills Park.
Respondents may submit proposals to the NYCEDC and the city's Department of Environmental Protection on a rolling basis, according to a quarterly schedule of submission dates.
NYCEDC and NYCDEP will select a developer based on factors including the quality of the proposal, the qualifications of proposed key staff, the quality of proposed subcontractors, and proven experience on similar projects.
