Issued by the Office of Utilities Regulation on November 28, 2012

The Office of Utilities Regulation (the Office/ OUR) invites interested entities to submit proposals for the supply of one or more plants of varying configurations greater than 100kW and up to 115 MW of renewable generating capacity to the national grid on a Build Own and Operate (BOO) basis.

BACKGROUND
The OUR is a multi-sector regulatory agency which was established in 1995 by the Office of Utilities Regulation Act from which it derives its mandate to regulate the provision of certain utility services in Jamaica.

The Ministry of Science, Technology, Energy and Mining (MSTEM) is responsible for the energy sector. The Ministry, in its National Energy Policy (NEP) 2009 – 2030 has identified fuel diversification and the development of the country’s renewable energy sources as two of its main objectives. The request for renewable electrical energy and/or capacity from renewable sources is in keeping with the Government of Jamaica’s (GOJ) target for renewable energy sources by 2015.

Based on the projected energy supply mix for 2015 in conjunction with the NEP, 115 MW capacity from renewable energy sources is required to be commissioned by 2015, which is the subject of this Request for Proposal (RFP).

ELIGIBILITY TO TENDER
Interested local firms must submit a copy of a valid Tax Compliance Certificate (TCC) with their Proposal. Interested foreign firms, while not required to be in possession of the TCC at the time of proposal submission, must provide a valid TCC at the time of contract signing.

Failure to adhere to these eligibility requirements will result in the disqualification of the Proposal.
