Edison International subsidiary Southern California Edison (SCE) has launched its fourth solicitation for renewable power contracts since 2002. SCE is soliciting 10-, 15- or 20-year contracts from all interested developers of renewable energy projects, including those using solar, wind, biomass, geothermal and small hydro energy. Proposals will be due to SCE by September 22.

"To meet our customers' future energy needs, we are again in the market offering long-term contracts to companies developing cost-effective, renewable power projects," says Pedro Pizarro, SCE senior vice president of power procurement. "This solicitation reflects our continuing commitment to environmental stewardship, to reduced reliance on fossil fuels, and to hedging against volatile natural gas prices."
