RFP Posted: March 25, 2015
Northwest Energy Efficiency Alliance (NEEA) is soliciting proposals from qualified contractors to provide initiative implementation support for NEEA’s commercial lighting Reduced Wattage Lamp Replacement Initiative (RWLR).
The RWLR initiative focuses on transforming lighting and electrical distributors’ stocking and sales practices from the dominant 32-watt linear fluorescent lamp to the more efficient 28-watt and 25-watt lamps. The Northwest region sees almost 10 million T8 lamps sold annually, with 32-watt fluorescent lamps having over 80 percent market share.
Transforming these lamp maintenance purchases to low watt lamp options represents a vast market opportunity with potential for over 80 average megawatts (aMW) of energy savings for the Northwest region. Barriers to adoption include lack of demand-side awareness of the product, in some cases higher cost relative to 32-watt lamps, and lack of supply-side stocking and promotion of the product.
NEEA is looking for an implementation contractor to support the scale up of this initiative across the Northwest with the region’s electrical distributors and their main lamp suppliers.
Intent to respond is due April 1, 2015. The deadline for submitting written proposals is April 22, 2015.

Northwest Energy Efficiency Alliance (NEEA) is soliciting proposals from qualified contractors to provide market research and evaluation (MRE) support for NEEA’s commercial lighting initiatives and infrastructure programs.
The Top Tier Trade Ally (TTTA) infrastructure program addresses the barrier of limited technical knowledge among trade allies participating in utility initiatives.
The Luminaire Level Lighting Controls (LLLC) initiative’s vision is that the vast majority of commercial and industrial luminaires and other electrical devices are autonomous and communicating, using sensors and controls to deliver energy efficiency and non-energy benefits.
The Reduced Wattage Lamp Replacement (RWLR) initiative focuses on transforming lighting and electrical distributors’ stocking and sales practices from the dominant 32-watt linear fluorescent lamp to the more efficient 28-watt and 25-watt lamps. NEEA is looking for an MRE contractor who is able to provide MRE support for all three initiatives, and for the regional commercial lighting strategy and marketing information needs.
Given the current and potential scope of work associated with this RFP, NEEA encourages contractor or team of contractors arrangements that may provide comprehensive and innovative MRE skillsets, as well as market knowledge of commercial lighting.
Intent to Respond is due March 27, 2015. The deadline for submitting written proposals is May 1, 2015.
