Philadelphia-based PECO has issued a request for proposals (RFP) to purchase 6 MW of solar power.
PECO says it recently received approval from the Pennsylvania Public Utility Commission (PUC) to purchase up to 80,000 solar alternative energy credits, for the equivalent of 6 MW over 10 years.
Through a competitive RFP process, PECO will enter into fixed-price agreements with winning bidders to purchase up to a total of 8,000 credits per year for 10 years. PECO expects to enter into the agreements by February 2010, for delivery beginning immediately for existing projects, or up to a year for projects under development.

PECO will release information on the RFP process to interested parties as it becomes available. Additional AEPS RFP information is available online at www.peco.com/aeps.
