Strategic Energy, LLC in Pittsburg, PA won a maximum $28.8 million firm fixed price contract for electricity for federal civilian agencies including the US Department of Energy’s Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory near Chicago. There were 49 proposals solicited and 8 responded. Date of performance completion is December 31, 2008 (SP0600-07-D-8006). DID has covered other electricity providers to Fermilab, most notably Peoples Energy Services Corp. in Chicago, IL, who received a $30.1 million contract in January 2006 that lasts until December 2007.
FermiLab works with high energy physics, undertaking projects ranging from linear colliders to cancer treatment research to the search for extra dimensions. As one might imagine, Fermilab uses a lot of electricity. They’ve instituted energy conservation projects with the support of the Department of Energy and collaboration from commercial suppliers, including the development and use of superconducting magnets. Recent improvements will save the laboratory several hundred thousand dollars every year.
