The State of Rhode Island Department of Administration, Division of Purchases, has selected Cranston-based RISE Engineering to provide turnkey energy-efficiency services to public-sector entities under a Master Price Agreement known as MPA 508.
This MPA allows state agencies and political subdivisions -- cities, towns, schools, quasi-public agencies -- to award energy-efficiency retrofit projects of up to $50,000 to MPA-listed companies without public bid. It also allows the award of projects between $50,000 and $600,000 without full public bid upon securing three bids from MPA-listed companies.
Turnkey energy-efficiency services are defined as:
- Performance of energy assessments;
- Identification and recommendation of appropriate energy-efficiency measures;
- Financial payback analysis of energy-efficiency measures;
- Installation services;
- Material and labor warranties;
- Appropriate reporting and facilitating of National Grid’s financial incentives or other available incentives or rebates.
Energy upgrades to existing buildings reduce utility bills and other operating expenses and make these spaces greener, healthier and more comfortable. The realized savings generally pay for the retrofit costs.
RISE stands ready to support your municipality’s energy-efficiency needs. We have a 35-year track record of providing comprehensive efficiency services on behalf of National Grid and other energy program administrators in Rhode Island and throughout the Northeast. Moreover, our resources and ability to offer these services across all major electrical and gas end uses and technologies set us apart from many other regional energy services firms.
