US operator Appalachian Power has issued a request for proposals (RFP) for up to 1000MW of wind and/or 100MW of solar generation resources with optional battery energy-storage systems.
The proposals will help the company, a subsidiary of American Electric Power, meet the renewable energy requirements established by Virginia’s Clean Economy Act (VCEA).
Under the VCEA, Appalachian Power must meet annual targets as it works toward 100% carbon-free energy in its Virginia service territory by 2050.
The company seeks to acquire the completed wind and/or solar projects through one or more purchase and sale agreements.
Facilities must be at least 50MW in size and achieve a commercial operation date of no later than 15 December 2025.
Bidders of solar projects may also include proposals with an option for a battery-energy storage system.
