New York City Economic Development Corporation (NYCEDC) is seeking a consultant or consultant team to provide final design drawings to support the installation of reliable, dispatchable, and sustainable power to identified critical facilities on the Hunts Point Peninsula in the event of an emergency. The Consultant will develop final design drawings for three project components: School Solar and Storage Installations, Emergency Backup Generation, and a Tri-Generation system to support the Produce Market and Meat Market. The solar plus storage installations will enable Middle School (MS) 424 and Primary School (PS) 48 to serve as public gathering spaces, shelter, or refuge in emergency situations. One main objective of the emergency backup generators is to provide backup power supply to other important citywide food distributors and employers in the Hunts Point Food Distribution Center.
