Advanced Energy Center Vendors

Sonoma Clean Power Authority (“SCP”) is seeking qualified manufacturers and/or distributors (“Vendors”) for SCP’s Advanced Energy Center. SCP’s Advanced Energy Center (“AEC”) will connect SCP customers directly with new and innovative energy efficiency technologies and/or decarbonization products to help homes and business transition to all-electric appliances. Preference will be given to Vendors that will:

  • Create displays and offer energy efficient and fuel switching products for sale directly to consumers in the Advanced Energy Center
  • Potentially offer discounts on energy efficient and fuel switching products to consumers
  • Provide a listing of at least 3 contractors that can install such products if existing trained contractors are known or work with SCP to identify and support training of local installing contractors
  • As desired, provide other related products and services in furtherance of the mission of the Advanced Energy Center.

The Advanced Energy Center can provide dedicated display space up to 25 square feet for approximately 20 Vendors. SCP anticipates potentially rotating vendors, with up to $2 million in direct incentives provided to customers. The selection committee will base their selection on customer feedback and/or market trends. New vendor applications may be solicited at any time. Please e-mail programs@sonomacleanpower.org for an updated status of vendors.

SCP’s target date for the opening of the Advanced Energy Center is October 2019.

Minority-owned, women-owned, disabled veteran- owned, and locally-headquartered businesses are encouraged to submit an application.
