Duke Energy Issues RFP for 750,000 MWh of Renewable Energy

By Editors of Power Engineering

Duke Energy’s Carolinas division has issued a request for proposals for 750,000 MWh of new renewable energy projects.

Projects resulting from the RFP will help Duke meet North Carolina’s 2007 Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency Portfolio Standard that mandates the company generate 12.5 percent of its revenue in the state via renewable energy or energy efficiency programs by 2021.

The RFP covers solar, wind, biomass, landfill gas and other facilities that qualify as a renewable energy resource under the state standards, though swine and poultry waste are excluded.

Such projects could come in the form of purchased power proposals, engineering, procurement and construction turnkey proposals that give Duke Energy ownership of the facility or proposals that are already in development and would allow Duke to take over ownership and build the facility.

Interested bidders should already be in the Duke Energy Carolinas interconnection queue.

At this point, Duke Energy companies have installed 450 MW of solar energy in North Carolina, and purchases 1,300 MW of solar capacity from other developers.
