Questions

Although the RFPs' scope and requirements are still being finalized through the Status Conferences and PUC guidance, Proposers can submit specific questions to the respective island's RFP Email Address for which it plans to submit a proposal to in advance of the opening of the RFP.

The Companies will endeavor to respond to the questions given what is known at the time the questions are proposed. Responses released prior to the opening of the RFPs may be subject to change based on the RFPs' final and approved forms.
