The Sacramento Municipal Utility District (SMUD) has released a Request for Offers (RFO) for cost-effective photovoltaic project power purchase agreements. Proposals are due April 14.
This RFO is requesting qualified offers of Renewable Portfolio Standard eligible solar photovoltaic energy resources located external to SMUD’s service territory. Projects should be located in California, Arizona, New Mexico or Nevada.
Multiple proposals can be submitted, however, each submittal can include only one project of at least 25 MW of capacity but no more than 100 MW of capacity with a single point of interconnection.
For projects equal to or exceeding 50 MW, SMUD does not require but would be interested in proposals that stage the level of capacity delivered.
Interested parties can download RFO No. 160049.SD documents from SMUD’s Electronic Bid Solicitation System (EBSS) web page at bids.smud.org. Registration to the EBSS site is required to access the documents.
