SAN FRANCISCO-- Pacific Gas and Electric Company (PG&E) today announced a call for proposals for renewable energy developers to build new projects for a clean energy program available to PG&E customers.

The sites are for PG&E’s Regional Renewable Choice program that will expand renewable energy access by enabling customers to work directly with developers of new renewable projects. Through the program, customers will have the option to work with developers and subscribe to the output from a new renewable project equaling between 25 and 100 percent of their electricity use. Participating customers will pay the developers for the new energy directly, and receive a bill credit from PG&E on their monthly energy statement.

“The Regional Renewable Choice program is part of our ongoing commitment to support the growth of solar and other renewable energy sources in California. This program enables our customers to reduce greenhouse gas emissions from their electricity usage and allows them to directly be a part of California’s clean energy future,” said PG&E Vice President of Customer Energy Solutions Aaron Johnson.

PG&E is seeking proposals from local renewable energy developers across Northern and Central California to build small- and mid-sized renewable projects ranging from 0.5 to 20 megawatts for the Regional Renewable Choice program. The energy for these new projects can be from renewable resources including but not limited to solar, wind or biomass.

This program offers renewable energy developers an opportunity to submit proposals starting April 26, 2017 through noon Pacific Time on May 26, 2017. Projects will be chosen through a competitive bidding process and are expected to be selected by August 2017. This request for offers calls for a development target of 150 megawatts of renewable resources.
