City Public Service Board (CPS Energy) agrees to furnish for deployment a smart luminaire control solution that meets requirements that include automated detection of LED functional status, automated dimming, energy measurement, and other functions.
CPS Energy is currently underway with a multi-year project to convert its approximately 128,000 streetlights from legacy lighting technologies to LED technology. That project is separate from this RFP.
Under the terms of this RFP, CPS Energy intends to procure and implement a smart luminaire control solution that meets requirements that include automated detection of LED functional status, automated dimming, energy measurement, and other functions, in accordance with SOW Exhibit E – Minimum Requirements, Smart Luminaire Control.
Under the terms of this RFP, the Office of Innovation Smart Cities (OISC) likewise intends to implement smart city technology solutions defined by five Use Cases which include: i) Air Quality Sensing; ii) Acoustic Noise Detection; iii) Temperature Sensing; iv) Automated Parking; and v) Automated Water Level Indication and Monitoring; in accordance with SOW Exhibit F – Minimum Requirements, Smart City Technology Use Cases.
Furthermore, CPS Energy and the OISC also request respondents to provide additional details regarding the vendor’s “Smart City Road Map”, beyond the minimum CPS Energy Streetlight Controls and the City of San Antonio Use Cases requested in this RFP, for consideration by CPS Energy and OISC. This roadmap may outline a multi-year plan for the maintenance, interoperability and resilience of the potential solution.
The primary goals of this RFP are:
To select technology solution providers with whom CPS Energy and the OISC will develop and implement a series of technology solutions to explore, implement and test smart luminaire controls and smart city technologies in three Pilot areas (a.k.a. “Innovation Zones”) of the CPS Energy service territory located within the City limits of San Antonio.
To use the results of these Pilots to engage the successful technology solution providers to negotiate best and final services and pricing, and to subsequently award a contract for system wide automation of smart luminaire controls for CPS Energy’s 128,000 streetlights; and
To use the results of these Pilots to engage the successful technology solution providers in a second phase of the RFP to negotiate and award a System Wide contract for roll-out of one or more of the technologies tested under the Smart City Use Cases deployed in the Pilot.
