The Ontario Power Authority (OPA) has issued a request for proposals (RFP) for projects larger than 10 MW in Ontario. This bidding will mark the first phase of a renewable energy supply (RES) procurement process – one that is intended to combat climate change by adding 2,000 MW of new green power to Ontario's electricity supply.
The 500 MW RES III RFP process is designed to bring renewable capacity to the province in areas where it is most needed. Proposals will be evaluated for technical capability, financial strength, previous experience, management skills and a variety of other criteria to ensure the successful bidders will complete their projects on time and on budget. A fairness advisor will monitor the process.
OPA will process and evaluate the bids. Successful projects are expected to be announced in December.
Deadline: Oct. 28
