RFI Information

RFI Requirements

Existing resources of up to 150 MWs beginning in 2015/2016

Proposals must be for a minimum block of 50 MWs

PPA and TA preferred contract terms are for a minimum of 20 years; asset purchases must have a remaining asset life of at least 20 years

Coal facilities should have current pollution control technology and meet or exceed all emission and other environmental requirements

AEPCO’s share of the resource must be dispatchable by AEPCO

Rfi information1


RFI Requirements (continued)

Capacity and energy must have firm transmission and deliverability to the Palo Verde, Westwing, or Mead hubs or to interconnections of these hubs, such as Winchester, Topock, and Greenlee that have available transmission capacity

Proposals will be accepted for capacity and/or the associated dispatchable energy

Due to the fact that AEPCO does not have any retail load any proposals for energy efficiency or demand side management (DSM) will be deemed unresponsive and will not be accepted


Rfi information2

RFI Information

AEPCO is primarily interested in purchasing for ownership a portion of an efficient natural gas-fired asset, but if no such product is available AEPCO will also consider a dispatchable call option PPA from:

  • such an asset for a 20 year term,

  • a coal asset for up to 10 years, or

  • a tolling arrangement for a period up to 20 years.
