NV Energy has issued a request for proposals for 400 to 700 MW of long-term firm capacity and energy resources beginning in 2018.
The new request is separate from an earlier solicitation by the Nevada utility for 135 MW of renewable energy.
NV Energy says the request is open to both conventional and renewable energy resources and can include an asset acquisition, power purchase agreement, tolling agreement or toll with a purchase option for a minimum of 10 years.
The bidding deadline is March 17, 2016. Winning projects require approval from the Public Utilities Commission of Nevada.
