People's Power & Light (PP&L), Rhode Island's nonprofit green power provider, is seeking long-term contract proposals from wind farm developers preparing responses to the state's request for proposals to build a wind farm off the coast of the state.

Specifically, PP&L seeks a subcontract with the option to purchase renewable energy certificates assuming the designated developer's environmental impact statement demonstrates that the environmental benefits outweigh anticipated negative impacts.

"We think that some reasonable portion of this project, particularly in its early years, should be allocated to the voluntary market so that Rhode Islanders can support clean energy development with 100% of their electricity consumption," says Omay Elphick, deputy director of PP&L. "With our market-priced long-term contracts, PP&L is a natural bridge between clean energy developers and Rhode Islanders who want to support clean energy with their utility dollars."
