NV Energy seeks new planning capacity to align with the company's plan to retire 812 megawatts of coal-fired generation by 2019 (NV Energy’s coal-fueled Reid-Gardner plant near Moapa, Nevada)

NV Energy has announced that it is seeking proposals to procure an additional 54 megawatts of company-owned planning capacity in Nevada. This solicitation is related to the company's Emissions Reduction and Capacity Replacement plan that is retiring 812 megawatts of coal-fired generation by 2019.

 The company is seeking proposals for:

  • Construction of a 54-megawatt to 68-megawatt gas-fired generating unit on a site identified by the company;
  • A build-transfer option for a 54-megawatt to 68-megawatt gas-fired generating unit at a location provided by the bidder;
  • A build-transfer option for a 140-megawatt single axis tracking solar photovoltaic facility at a location provided by the bidder; and
  • Alternative proposals that would allow the company to acquire or partner to construct a renewable energy resource that would satisfy the remaining 54 megawatts of planning capacity.

NV Energy is holding a bidders' conference and webinar at 9:30 a.m. (PPT) on Monday, April 13, 2015, in both Southern and Northern Nevada. Registration and attendance details can be found on the company's website.

Bids will be due May 29, 2015.
