The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Engineering and Support Center in Alabama has awarded Multiple Award Task Order Contracts (MATOC) to 22 solar energy contractors.
The contracts are part of the Department of Defense (DOD)’s $7 billion Renewable and Alternative Energy Power Production program. The first technology, geothermal, was awarded on May 3. The remaining technologies – wind and biomass – will be awarded on a staggered schedule by the end of 2013.
The 22 qualified contractors will be able to compete for future projects within the technology area for any renewable energy task order issued under the MATOC by the U.S. Army or DOD. The MATOC will be used to procure renewable and alternative energy for Defense installations through power purchase agreements.
The U.S. Army must meet a Congressionally-mandated energy goal of 25 percent production and use of energy from renewable sources by 2025.
