East Kentucky Power Cooperative (EKPC) has issued a request for proposals (RFP) to obtain up to 300 MW of generation resources for projects to be placed in service by October 2015.

Resources with an online date as late as October 2017 will be considered but will be evaluated in light of any additional costs incurred by EKPC due to the later date.

EKPC will consider both power purchase agreements and facility ownership of the following types of resources:

  • New and existing renewable energy generation;
  • New construction of conventional generation technologies and all fuel types to include turnkey, joint ownership or other alternatives; and
  • Existing conventional generation (a share of a plant could be accepted).

EKPC has formally applied to join the PJM Interconnection and expects to be a full member before October 2015. The Brattle Group is serving as the independent procurement manager for this RFP process.

Parties interested in submitting a proposal should begin by reviewing the RFP document. Proposals are due by Aug. 30.
