The province of Ontario is seeking 930 MW of renewables, including up to 250 MW of solar PV capacity, by launching a second phase of the competitive Large Renewable Procurement (LRP) process.

According to a government release, a Request for Qualifications process will be issued by Aug. 1.

The release asserts that the province will continue to ensure renewable energy procurement encourages the selection of projects with local support and competitive prices, as well as projects with First Nation and Métis participation.

Based on the results of the first phase of the LRP, Ontario expects that C$3.3 billion in LRP costs will be removed relative to the 2013 Long-Term Energy Plan forecast, saving the typical residential electricity consumer an average of C$1.67 per month on his electricity bill over the forecast period.
