FirstEnergy Corp. says that a request for proposals will be issued to secure renewable energy certificates (RECs) for customers of its Ohio utilities – Ohio Edison, Cleveland Electric Illuminating Company and Toledo Edison – to help meet the renewable energy requirements established under Ohio's new energy law.
The RFP is seeking RECs for FirstEnergy's Ohio utilities for 2009, 2010 and 2011. The RECs being solicited include credits from Ohio-based solar projects and solar projects in contiguous states. No energy or capacity will be purchased under the RFP.
The number of individual bidders is not limited. Participants must meet and maintain specific credit and security qualifications, and must be able to prove their RECs are certified or in the process of becoming certified by the state of Ohio.
To participate in the RFP, bidders must submit credit information by July 27, with proposals due by August 7.
