Drafted Scope of Work for State Energy Efficiency Administrator RFP - Public Comment Period through September 15th 

In June 2023, the Rhode Island General Assembly passed legislation signed into law by Governor McKee to require that the Office of Energy Resources (OER) issue a competitive request for proposals (RFP) for a program administrator (PA) of the state’s electric and gas energy efficiency programming. The PA will be responsible for delivering energy efficiency services statewide. The RFP is to be posted publicly through the Rhode Island Division of Purchases no later than September 30th, 2023 and will accept vendor proposals for a minimum of 28 days.

OER is initiating its public stakeholder process to gather input and feedback on the elements included in this RFP. A draft scope of work is available at the link below for review and comments from the public and stakeholders.

Public comments will be accepted on this scope of work through September 15th. OER is not seeking any comments from any vendors or subcontractors that may be involved in any potential proposals to this RFP. All comments received will be posted publicly to the OER website after the close of the public comment period. Comments may be submitted as Microsoft Word or PDF documents via email to or via mail to:
