Request for Offer (RFO)
Clean Power Alliance of Southern California ("Clean Power Alliance") is soliciting competitive proposals for the purchase of 10-year or longer renewable energy and storage contracts through a Request for Offer (“RFO”). The goal of the RFO is for Clean Power Alliance to solicit and evaluate offers from renewable energy generation and storage facilities to meet Clean Power Alliance’s electricity needs, achieve its environmental objectives, and offer its customers competitive, clean energy options. Based on the solicitation and evaluation, Clean Power Alliance may enter into one or more long-term Power Purchase Agreements (“PPAs”) with renewable energy generation and storage facilities that can deliver into the California Independent System Operator Grid (“CAISO”) for an aggregate amount between 1,000,000 and 2,000,000 megawatt-hours (“MWh”) per year of Energy, Environmental Attributes, Resource Adequacy, and Ancillary Services, as applicable, from three types of products:
Product 1: Renewable energy products individually metered from new or existing facilities, with or without energy storage, meeting the delivery requirements established for Portfolio Content Category 1 (PCC1), as defined under California’s RPS.
Product 2: Fixed-volume renewable energy products from new or existing facilities meeting requirements for PCC1 or PCC2 and priced at Index-Plus.
Product 3: Stand-alone energy storage products capable of offering all three of the following: Resource Adequacy, Energy, and Ancillary Services.
