Portland General Electric (PGE) has issued a request for proposals (RFP) to supply renewable power to help PGE comply with Oregon's 25% by 2025 renewable energy standard.

PGE wants to acquire up to 100 average MW of renewable power including wind, geothermal, biomass, biogas, solar and hydroelectric power. Renewable generation resources must meet a minimum size of at least 10 MW, and these resources must be available to come online between 2013-2017.

PGE intends to submit a benchmark proposal in the renewable RFP process, which will be due Oct. 30. Bids from outside parties are due Nov. 13.

This RFP will be conducted pursuant to guidelines established by the OPUC and is a significant step in implementing PGE’s current integrated resource plan.

PGE issued a separate RFP earlier this year, seeking baseload energy resources as well as flexible and seasonal capacity resources. The company is currently evaluating the bids received, and expects to develop a short list of bids for negotiation by the end of November.
