Upon further review 3CE has determined that the shortlist deposit of $3/kW (as described in Section 6.3 of the RFP Protocol) will no longer be a requirement of this RFP process.

3CE will require shortlisted Bidders to complete an NDA and Exclusive Negotiation Agreement (ENA). The final ENA will be revised to remove references to the shortlist deposit.
