NV Energy has issued a request for offers (RFO) for renewable energy credits (RECs) from qualified renewable energy generators. This solicitation requests proposals for the sale of RECs and all other renewable energy benefits, but does not seek the associated renewable energy from generation sources. Proposals can be for a contractual time length of five to 25 years.
Proposals will be considered for energy derived from wind, solar, geothermal, biomass and other resources eligible for portfolio energy credits under Nevada's renewable portfolio standard. The RECs will require certification from the Public Utilities Commission of Nevada through the Nevada Tracks Renewable Energy Credits program.
Eligible renewable resources must either be in operation or have a commercial operation date of no later than July 1, 2013. Minimum bid size is 450 kW, but proposals can be comprised of multiple sites of no less than 150 kW at each site.
Deadline: Sept. 22.
