Staff recommends approval of the proposed Agreement with PowerSecure to install new switchgear, breakers, enclosure, controls, connection for remote monitoring and dispatch capability for the proposed installation of a 310 kW emergency generator at the water tower. This installation will provide functionality similar to the previous eight generator switchgear installations by PowerSecure for Leesburg. The proposed agreement provides for turnkey installation of the switchgear, together with annual switchgear maintenance services and a five year extended warranty.
This project will provide needed emergency power to support the water tower and will serve as an additional distribution generator to dispatch along with the other eight emergency generators during potential coincident peak hours. Based on anticipated operating expenses and projected wholesale power supply costs, the anticipated payback for this project will be 24 months. The cost of the eight previously installed PowerSecure locations was included in the Leesburg Smart Grid Investment Grant (SGIG) project and will be eligible for a reimbursement of 50% of the installed cost. Similarly, the procurement and installation cost of this project will be included in a future SGIG reimbursement request. With the cost share feature, the investment will produce a very rapid payback.
1. Approve the agreement with PowerSecure as presented; or,
2. Such alternative action as the Commission may deem appropriate
The Turnkey installation will cost $130,877.00 which is eligible for 50% reimbursement from the Leesburg Smart Grid Investment Grant (SGIG). The City’s match of $65,438.50, the annual maintenance agreement of $1,500.00 and the 5-year exended warranty of $7,665.00 were not specifically budgeted however, funds are available in the Reserve for Future Use account of $1,333,870.00. Use of these funds will require a budget adjustment.
