BACKGROUND:
In 2004, the Naperville City Council approved the Naperville Renewable Energy Program enabling utility customers (both residential and businesses) to make voluntarily monthly payments through their electric bill to support the City's investment in renewable energy. With a 5.53% participation rate in the program, it is among the top 10 green power community programs in the United States according to the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL). The program's renewable energy is sourced 100% from Illinois-sited renewable energy facilities. The program also provides grants to directly fund local community-based renewable energy projects for all commercial customers who invest in solar, wind, photovoltaic, biomass, and fuel cell technologies projects. The goals of the program are to create opportunities for the community to learn about renewable solutions, support grant projects that measurably increase renewable energy usage and displace fossil fuels, and have projects that can be replicated.

On October 17, 2017, the City Council approved the use of up to $150,000 of the fund to install a roof-mounted, 50 kW system comprised of approximately 150 photovoltaic (PV) modules on the Municipal Center roof and develop a community solar education program.

DISCUSSION:
In April 2018, the Electric Utility issued RFP 18-019 soliciting proposals to hire a firm to design, build and operate a roof mount fixed axis solar photovoltaic system on the Municipal Center roof.
