Arizona Public Service Co. (APS), Arizona’s largest and longest-serving electricity utility, has announced a request for proposals (RFP) to provide dispatchable capacity to meet peak power demands.
The company is seeking approximately 300 MW of peaking capacity, which may be bid as a power purchase agreement or a build, own, and transfer structure. Proposals should demonstrate that projects can reach commercial operation by summer 2018 or 2019.
The RFP will be released on January 30, with the deadline to submit bids falling on March 18, 2015. Proposals will be evaluated relative to an APS self-build option to expand the existing Ocotillo Power Plant site located in Temple, Ariz. The RFP process will be monitored by an independent third party.
