Progress Energy Carolinas has issued a request for proposals (RFP) for potential renewable energy projects and alternative energy providers, as part of the company's balanced strategy for meeting the growing energy needs of its customers in the Carolinas.

The company issued an open-ended RFP in November 2007. This request remains open, but there are certain deadlines for submitting proposals to be considered in the company's renewable resource planning, which is updated at regular intervals and shared with state regulators annually.

The company expects to purchase up to 1 million MWh of renewable energy when the initial phase of the state renewable portfolio standard takes effect in 2012.

Solar energy bids with a capacity of 50 kW or greater, and non-solar bids with a capacity of 10 MW or less will be accepted. The latter category includes wind, hydropower, geothermal, ocean current/wave energy, biomass (agricultural waste, spent pulping liquors and energy crops), landfill methane or hydrogen derived from a renewable resource. Priority will be given to those proposals that are expected to be operational before 2011.

Deadline: Nov. 11.
