SCE Seeks Energy from Solar Installations
Southern California Edison (SCE) launched a Request for Offers (RFO) to procure electricity from independent power producers as part of its solar photovoltaic program.
The RFO is the fourth solicitation since the program began in 2010. The program is primarily designed to encourage energy production from rooftop-mounted solar photovoltaic facilities sized between 500 kW and 10 MW. SCE is seeking up to 63 MW of direct current power in this RFO round.
SCE encourages the production of solar photovoltaic power within its service area as it continues making progress toward California’s Renewables Portfolio Standard goal of delivering 33 percent renewable power.
SCE has scheduled a bidder’s web conference on Oct. 17 to discuss the RFO process, and the company says it is particularly interested in offers from central and southern Orange County.
Since its inception in 2010, SCE’s program has been buying energy from solar photovoltaic generating facilities using a standard 20-year power purchase agreement (PPA).
