San Diego Gas & Electric (SDG&E) announced that it is seeking offers from electricity suppliers to provide more renewable energy, including wind, to meet its customers' needs.

SDG&E has been contracting for renewable resources so that it can supply 20% of its customers' power from green resources by 2010. Contracts for renewable energy currently comprise about 13% of the utility's power resources.

Terry Farrelly, vice president of electric and gas procurement for SDG&E, says the utility is continuing its efforts to procure clean energy to enhance the environment and diversify its supply mix as well as respond to customer demand.

Under the request for offers, SDG&E said it will review proposals to buy power from a new or existing facility, buy under contract and then purchase the power plant at the end of five years, or own the facility outright, once it is built. Offers for power generated within the utility's service territory must be at least 1MW, and bids for power outside that area must be at least 5 MW, the company said. Suppliers can begin delivery in 2007, 2008, 2009 or 2010.
