WorldWater & Power Corp. Wins Its First U.S. General Services Administration Contract Bid for Solar System at Federal Courthouse in Trenton
WorldWater & Power Corp., developer and marketer of proprietary high-power solar systems, today announced that the company has been awarded a $346,694 contract by the U.S. General Services Administration (GSA) to build a solar electric system at the Clarkson S. Fisher U.S. Courthouse Annex in Trenton, New Jersey. The project is a joint venture with Ray Angelini, Inc. (RAI) of Sewell, New Jersey. The WorldWater winning bid calls for the installation of photovoltaic panels on the roof of the seven-story glass tower, which was completed in 1996. The solar system will provide a portion of the Annex’s electricity and the Federal Government will earn “net metering” credits for its solar electric production from PSE&G when the offices are closed. Approximately $147,500 of the construction cost will be paid in the form of a rebate from the New Jersey Clean Energy Program.
Quentin T. Kelly, Chairman of WorldWater & Power commented on the new contract, “As far as we know, this is the first contract awarded by the GSA Mid-Atlantic Region to build a solar electric system and we are proud to be the winning bidder. GSA’s commitment to a clean, efficient energy benefits everyone with better air quality and helps taxpayers by lowering the operational costs of government facilities.”
GSA is a centralized, federal procurement, property management, policy development and information provision agency created by Congress to improve government efficiency and help federal agencies better serve the public. GSA is committed to incorporating principles of sustainable design and energy efficiency into all of its building projects. To evaluate and measure its green building achievements, all GSA new construction and substantial renovations must be certified through the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED(r)) Green Building Rating System of the U.S. Green Building Council.
