Fredericton, New Brunswick-based NB Power has released a request for proposals (RFP) for the purchase of up to 100 MW of wind energy generation.

NB Power will evaluate the submissions based on a number of criteria – most importantly, the price of electricity. This is to ensure that New Brunswick ratepayers continue to receive competitively priced electricity. Developers will also have to demonstrate the performance capabilities of their project and plans for procuring the maximum amount of local content.

The departments of Energy and Business New Brunswick, in cooperation with the province's community economic development agencies, will assist developers in identifying New Brunswick companies that are capable of supplying services to wind energy developers.

Following the conclusion of the RFP process, the successful developer or developers will be held accountable for meeting project performance and local content commitments. If it is determined that they have not lived up to their project commitments, the developer will be subject to financial penalties.

Deadline: Aug. 14.
