 SDG&E Solicits Bids on Up to 140 MW of Clean Energy Resources

San Diego Gas & Electric (SDG&E) has issued a Request for Offers (RFO) for up to 140 MW of new “preferred energy resources,” including energy storage, renewable energy, distributed generation, energy efficiency and demand response.

The RFO is in accordance with regulators’ authorization for procurement for local capacity requirements after the retirement of San Onofre Nuclear Generation Station.

SDG&E is interested in resources that can begin deliveries in 2018 but the utility will consider later start dates.

SDG&E currently has more than 60 renewable contracts, representing more than 2,400 MW of renewable energy.

In 2015, SDG&E supplied its customers with a third of its energy from renewable resources.

The bid submission deadline is July 1.  The utility expects to have a short list by Oct. 28.
