WHEREAS, an option to sell the city’s generated electrical power to an adjoining single business, such as The Dow Chemical Company (Dow), has been determined to be in the best interest of the city; and

WHEREAS, negotiations with Dow for the sale of all generated power from the city's gas-to- energy system, plus the renewable energy credits, have been underway for the past eight months; and 

WHEREAS, the proposed energy purchase agreement with Dow will reimburse the city for its bill from Consumers Energy of up to 1,000,000 kWh per month electric usage at the Plants, provided that the city has generated at least that amount of electricity during the same period; and

WHEREAS, any amount of electric generation in addition to the city’s use will be sold to Dow at a per kilowatt-hour rate of $0.05 kWh, based on a formula utilizing the variable cost of natural gas, the heat recovery of our equipment, industry standards for operation and maintenance, debt service, and standards for costs of renewable energy credits; and

WHEREAS, in addition to revenue from the sale of energy to Dow, renewable energy credits are calculated on all electric energy produced at a rate of $0.0025 kWh and paid to the city; and 

WHEREAS, the agreement is for a 10-year period, with options to extend by 5-year increments, and is designed to assure fairness and value to both parties, and will clearly allow the city to eventually meet all of its original goals and cost savings to the water and wastewater treatment plants as well as to the city’s general fund operations; now therefore

The following resolution was offered by Councilman Wazbinski and seconded by Councilman Adams:

 

WHEREAS, when the city decided on the option of selling electric power generated from its gas-to-energy facility to The Dow Chemical Company, it necessitated the installation of a billing quality meter to measure the amount of electricity being output from the facility; and

WHEREAS, the installation work involved the disconnection of power feeds, digging and setting the meter cabinet basement, the routing of new conduits encased in concrete from the existing duct bank from GTE building to the new meter cabinet, reinstalling the power feeds, and testing of the cables; and

WHEREAS, the gas-to-energy facility is complete, and it was impractical for the city to hire an electric contractor to perform the installation work that had not previously worked on the facility; and

WHEREAS, the city retained the services of Newkirk Electric Associates, Inc. of Muskegon to perform the installation work for a fee of $24,693.00, as they were the subcontractor to general contractor The Christman Company that constructed the compressor and gas-to-energy facilities; and

WHEREAS, funds are available in the Gas-To-Energy project; now therefore

RESOLVED, that sealed proposals are hereby waived as impractical, in accord with Sec. 2-18 of the Code of Ordinances, and a purchase order to Newkirk Electric Associates, Inc. in the amount of $24,693.00 is authorized for services to install a new meter cabinet and associated wiring for a billing quality meter to measure the amount of electricity being output from the city’s gas-to-energy facility.  (Motion ADOPTED.)

WHEREAS, a purchase order was administratively approved in the amount of $20,000.00 to Lang Construction, Inc. of Flint, based on the unit prices received January 10, 2011; and

WHEREAS, an increase of $25,000.00 to the existing purchase order is requested to complete the inventory of needed restoration, and for work anticipated through June 2011; and

WHEREAS, funding has been budgeted for this purpose in the 2010/11 Water Fund account #591.8285.93.036 – Repairs & Maintenance; now therefore

RESOLVED, an increase of $25,000.00 to an existing purchase order of $20,000.00 to Lang Construction is hereby authorized, bringing the total purchase order to $45,000.00 for out lawn repair work, based on previously bid unit prices; and
