Minneapolis-based Xcel Energy has issued a request for proposals (RFP) for 500 MW of wind power to help it meet Minnesota's renewable portfolio standard. Under the company's preferred option, once the project is built, its ownership would be transferred to Xcel Energy. The company will consider resources with commercial operation dates through 2011.

Xcel plans to add 2,600 MW of wind resources to its system by 2020, in addition to the 1,300 MW of wind resource scheduled to be online by the end of 2008.

Deadline: Feb. 29, 2008.
