Nevada utility NV Energy is seeking proposals to secure 400-600 MW of long-term firm capacity and energy resources for its customers beginning in 2020.
The resource need, listed in a new request for proposals (RFP), is for summer-peak planning capacity. This RFP is separate from the company’s solicitation issued in October for 350 MW (nameplate capacity) of renewable energy.
The new RFP for 400-600 MW (firm capacity) is open to both conventional and renewable energy resources and can include an asset acquisition, tolling agreement or toll with a purchase option. The resources are needed beginning in summer 2020.
The bidding deadline for this new round of RFPs is Feb. 11. The winning projects may require approval of the Public Utilities Commission of Nevada, notes NV Energy.
