The project will also include the Army Signal Activity-Camp Roberts.

The military installation will seek firm-fixed price bids for contracts up to 30 years. Specifically, the contract covers “provisioning, production, purchase, and delivery of secure, reliable, locally-generated electricity,” according to pre-solicitation notice.

The solicitation envisions an on-site contractor-constructed energy production facility (EPF).
