Sierra Pacific Resources has announced that its two Nevada-based utility subsidiaries - now doing business as NV Energy - have issued a request for proposals (RFP) for renewable energy resources.

Proposals will be considered for the following types of renewable energy resources: solar, wind, geothermal, biomass and other resources eligible for portfolio energy credits under Nevada's renewable portfolio standard (RPS).

This request is consistent with the companies' ongoing plan to surpass the goals of the RPS, which requires 20% of the state's energy to come from renewable resources or energy efficiency measures by 2015.

Deadline: Nov. 11.
