GSA Seeks Information from Industry on Domestic Solar Panel Production.

Opportunity Title:

Request for Information: Domestic Solar Panel Production



Description:

The information received will help GSA develop a procurement strategy, which will potentially include a standard for use in future solicitations where the use of PV panels and components are required.

The RFI supports the goals of several Executive Orders: EO 14005 on Ensuring the Future is Made in All of America by All of America’s Workers, EO 14017 on America’s Supply Chains, and EO 14057 on Catalyzing Clean Energy Industries and Jobs Through Federal Sustainability.


“Clean energy technologies such as solar photovoltaics play a critical role in our strategy to modernize the electric power system,” shared Andrew Mayock, US Federal Chief Sustainability Officer. “The expansion of our domestic manufacturing capability, incentivized by the Inflation Reduction Act and further supported by government procurement, will result in lower energy costs for all, increase the resilience of our power grid, create good-paying jobs at home, and help prevent further worsening of the climate crisis.”


The President also recently called for the development of new agreements for “domestically manufactured solar power systems to increase the speed and efficiency with which domestic clean electricity providers can sell their products to the U.S. Government” and “[s]o-called ‘Super Preferences’ to apply domestic content standards for federal procurement of solar power systems, including domestically manufactured solar photovoltaic components, consistent with the Buy American Act.” These actions aim to spur domestic clean energy manufacturing, lower energy costs, and create good-paying jobs. GSA is seeking industry input on how best to meet these goals.
