Renewable Energy Needed for San Diego Portfolio

San Diego Gas and Electric Company (SDG&E) is issuing a Request for Offers (RFO) to find proposals from eligible renewable energy resources so the company can expand its renewable energy portfolio. The search will help the utilities company achieve its goal of an overall resource portfolio comprised of 20 percent renewable energy by the year 2010.

July 19, 2004 [] Resources offered must meet the California state Renewable Portfolio Standard (RPS) eligibility criteria set forth by the California Energy Commission. Respondents must offer a minimum net contract capability of 1 MW if the resource is within SDG&E’s service area or a net contract capability of 5 MW if the resource is outside the service area. Responses must be received by August 12, 2004. Deliveries must commence in the years specified within the RFO. A list of pre-bid conference participants will be provided on the RFO Website. All REC’s must be tendered to SDG&E without any additional costs or conditions.
