Contracting Opportunity: Industry and Agriculture

In March 2022, Energy Trust of Oregon will release a Request for Proposals (RFP) to select an implementation contractor(s) to manage and deliver Energy Trust’s Production Efficiency program. The Production Efficiency program helps manufacturers and agricultural producers of all types and sizes control their energy costs.

Energy Trust encourages firms certified by Oregon’s Certification Office for Business Inclusion and Diversity (COBID) as minority- owned, women-owned, service-disabled veteran-owned businesses, and emerging small businesses to consider this opportunity and to propose as a prime contractor or join an implementation team as a subcontractor. Energy Trust will require a minimum of 20% of the value of the contract (not including incentive budgets) to be delivered by COBID-certified firms (unless the primary respondent is COBID-certified). More information on COBID certification is available here.

Energy Trust is holding two virtual/online events prior to the release of the RFP to help potential bidders learn more about Energy Trust’s Production Efficiency program and to connect with other bidders to create implementation teams.

This informational meeting will provide an overview of Energy Trust and the Production Efficiency program.


Thursday, December 9, 2021, 10 a.m. – 12 p.m. PPT Register (Space is limited)

This online event is being held to facilitate networking among firms who may wish to team up to provide the required implementer qualifications and expertise including:

During this two-hour session, firms will have 3-5 minutes to introduce their company, areas of specialization, and qualifications. Firms must sign up in advance to make a presentation—one presenter per firm.

After the event, all participants will receive contact information for all participating firms and can follow up as desired for further discussions.
