Q: How do I register as a Technology Provider in PRITS?
A: Visit https://www.prits.pr.gov/#RFI, download the Request for Information (RFI) document, complete the information requested and send to firstname.lastname@example.org
Q: Can we apply for funding for a combination of power system components at one site, such as a generator, solar, battery backup, the required accessories, and grid tied equipment?
A: Yes, Respondents may request funding for resilient power systems that are comprised of several different components as long as the combined system is properly engineered.
Q: Does Site Security funding include hiring a security service?
A: No, that would be considered an operation expense and this Program is limited to capital expenses.
Q: Is funding available for portable generators?
A: Yes. However, permanently installed generators with automatic fail over controllers are strongly preferred.
Q: How can I upload my files if they are larger than 10MB?
A: There are two options for uploading documentation, the organization can upload a compressed zip file or upload the documentation on a file sharing platform (such as Wetransfer, Dropbox, etc.) and in "project description" jot down the link to download thedocumentation.
Q: Are the funds to be allocated in the Resilient Power and Hardening program local or federal funds?
A: The funds for the Resilient Power and Hardening RFP are local funds, not federal.
Q: What are the expectations and potential implications if our proposal is approved but for a lower amount than requested amount?
A: As stated in the RFP, “The Evaluation Committee and/or PRBP reserves the right to request additional information from Applicants on an as-needed basis during the evaluation process. Following this, the PRBP may enter into negotiations with Applicants to expand or contract the scope of work and adjust the grant amount accordingly..”
Q: On page 5 of the RFP, it says that the minimum capacity of 10 days of continuous operations. Can this be a combination of solar battery backup with generators, or does each of the energy technology need to be designed for 10 days independently?
A: On page 5 the RFP requests, “Details on the provision of adequate fuel storage and distribution systems that can provide fuel for resilient power systems with a minimum capacity of ten (10) days of continuous operations.”
Q: Would the cost of using an engineering firm to design resilient power systems be paid by the grant?
A: Design and engineering by a subcontractor is an eligible cost.
Q: What happens if the final project costs are different than estimated project costs?
A: Respondents must make their best effort to accurately estimate project costsprior to submitting their applications.
