The Army has released a new draft request for proposals for renewable energy projects, Federal News Radio reports.

The move is part of the Army’s Energy Initiatives Task Force, which focuses on creating large renewable energy projects on Army bases.

The Army is looking for $7 billion in private investments for the projects.

Contractors will be able to sell energy to both the Army and the private sector through this program, according to Federal News Radio.

The Army has already selected 15 bases for the projects and plans to use a two-step acquisition process under a multiple-award task order contract.

Winning vendors will own and operate the Army base to produce renewable energy production for the next 30 years, according to Federal News Radio.

The final draft of the RFP is expected to be released this spring.

The Army also plans to publish a renewable energy project guide for vendors by summer.

In May, the Army will host a forum to update the industry on its renewable energy projects.
