The Sacramento Municipal Utility District (SMUD) released a Request for Offers (RFO) for cost-effective photovoltaic project power purchase agreements. Proposals are due April 14, 2016.
This RFO is requesting qualified offers of Renewable Portfolio Standard eligible solar photovoltaic energy resources located external to SMUD’s service territory. Projects should be located in California, Arizona, New Mexico or Nevada.
Multiple proposals can be submitted, however, each submittal can include only one project of at least twenty-five (25) megawatt (MW) of capacity but no more than one hundred (100) MW of capacity with a single point of interconnection. For projects equal to or exceeding 50 MW, SMUD does not require but would be interested in proposals that stage the level of capacity delivered.
