Fiscal Note
The proposed resolution authorizes the agreement with Focus on Energy and acceptance of the associated incentive awards. Approximately $25,011 is expected to be received for the Streets West Solar Electric Installation by Fall 2018 and approximately $14,994 is expected to be received for the Library Maintenance & Support Center Solar Electric Installation by Fall 2018. When these award funds are received, they will be deposited to the Facilities Management major project Sustainability Improvements (MUNIS 10563). Budgeted GO borrowing for the Sustainability Improvements program within the Engineering Facilities Management capital budget sufficiently provides for these planned renewable energy projects in 2017.
