[RenewableEnergyAccess.com] Arizona Public Service Company (APS) issued a draft request for proposal seeking renewable energy resources for delivery beginning in 2006. This RFP complies with APS’ recently completed general rate case, which requires that APS solicit at least 100 MW and at least 250,000 megawatt-hours per year of renewable resources. Going forward, APS will be required to meet at least 10 percent of its annual incremental peak capacity with renewable energy resources. Proposals will be considered for the following types of renewable energy resources: solar, wind, biomass/biogas, small hydro (under 10 MW), hydrogen (other than from natural gas) and geothermal. The renewable resources must be deliverable to the APS transmission system and the pricing must not exceed 125 percent of conventional resource alternatives. A pre-bid conference for interested parties will be held April 13. Additional information about this draft RFP and the pre-bid conference is available online at the following link.
