Resiliency as a Service is a new product offering designed to support commercial and industrial customers that have a need for higher than standard service reliability. We will provide this support through company ownership, installation, operation and maintenance of resiliency assets.
The program is designed to be technology agnostic and will allow for customers to choose resiliency options to best meet their needs. Technologies funded through this offering will include but are not limited to:
Customers will work with us and a preferred set of vendors to design, construct and interconnect their system. This will allow for a single point of contact throughout the process, providing a simple and efficient customer experience.
We are seeking responses from qualified vendors to provide these services across our service territory.
All responses must be transmitted electronically, via email, to the RFQ Manager at: ResiliencyRFQ@xcelenergy.com by 5 p.m. CST on Feb 1, 2021.
Any responses, or documents included therein, that exceed 35 MB in size, must be transmitted upon request to the RFQ Manager, via a secure upload to the XpressDRIVE File Exchange.
Responses received later than the due date and time indicated will be rejected and returned unopened unless Xcel Energy determines, at its sole discretion, to consider such responses.
