Southern California Edison Seeks 100 MW of New Clean Power Resources

Southern California Edison is looking to acquire renewable energy, capacity and load reduction from new clean power resources.

Southern California Edison is looking to acquire renewable energy, capacity and load reduction from new clean power resources.

The utility launched a Request for Offers (RFO), its second in support of its Preferred Resources Pilot (PRP) in Orange County.

SCE is seeking up to 100 MW for delivery in 2018.

Caroline McAndrews, director of SCE’s PRP, says the PRP provides an opportunity to explore the reliability of cleaner-energy resources in densely populated areas.

The new preferred resources will serve the local system, providing ancillary grid services.

“The grid of the future will have a mix of these preferred resources providing reliable affordable service to our customers while reducing or eliminating the need to build new gas-fired plants,” said McAndrews.
Eligible preferred resources include renewable distributed generation, demand response, energy storage and renewable generation paired with energy storage.  The resources must connect to circuits or load that feed into either the Johanna or Santiago substations in Orange County.

Projects that meet the RFO requirements can participate in the bidding process.  SCE has scheduled a bidder’s conference Oct. 7 in the Orange County area.
