St. Petersburg, Fla.-headquartered Progress Energy Florida has issued a request for proposals to expand the company's renewable portfolio.
The utility specifies that eligible projects must be located in Florida, be fully operational by Jan. 1, 2013, sell electrical output to Progress Energy Florida at a cost equal to or below the cost to build new power plants, run in a predictable and reliable manner, and be capable of producing at least 1 MW of electric capacity. The company will consider smaller projects under certain conditions.
Progress Energy Florida has two types of renewable energy contracts that have been pre-approved by the Florida Public Service Commission: an as-available contract or a standard offer contract.
Deadline: Oct. 31, 2007
