PGCC & PEA SEEK PARTNERS TO SCALE UP INNOVATIVE WHOLE-HOME REPAIR PROGRAM
October 11, 2022: The Philadelphia Green Capital Corp. (PGCC) and Philadelphia Energy Authority (PEA) released a pair of Requests for Proposals (RFPs) which each seek one or more partners to support PEA’s Built to Last program. The RFPs can be found here. The “Intent to Submit” deadline is October 21st and proposals are due November 11th.
Built to Last (BTL) is a whole home restoration program for low-income homeowners focused on restoring healthy, safe, affordable homes that keep people in their communities. Built to Last helps Philadelphia’s government, non-profit, and utility home repair programs work together to seamlessly deliver collaborative projects, prevent program denials, and fundamentally preserve existing affordable housing. PEA and PGCC are completing a pilot serving 50 homes that began in late 2021.
In its RFP, PGCC is seeking one or more Program Services Contractors to manage supplemental scopes of work for the BTL homes. Supplemental work either exceeds the cost thresholds of partner programs or is not currently covered by that set of existing programs, such as the replacement of fossil fuel home systems and appliances with electric options that provide both heating and air conditioning (i.e. electrification) and adding rooftop solar to eligible homes.
