Local Renewable Generation and Energy Storage Projects
(Monterey, CA, June 7, 2018.) MBCP has issued an RFO to receive proposals for the development of local renewable generation and energy storage projects located within any member jurisdiction of MBCP’s service territory. The RFO seeks terms of 5 to 20 years with an installed capacity of 1 to 3 megawatts (MWs).
MBCP aims to procure a total of 20 MWs through this process. This RFO comes in direct response to feedback from the communities we serve. The goal of the RFO is to increase local renewable generation, increase local energy storage, and promote economic vitality for the Tri-County area.
In addition to technical considerations, the RFO will be evaluated for its impact on interconnection and capacity improvements, project location, project technology and size, contract term, job creation, local hiring, prevailing wage, economic growth, increase in local investment, environmental impact, developer experience, and project status.
