Xcel Energy's Southwestern Public Service Co. (SPS) is seeking a request for proposals (RFP) for more than 1,000 MW of additional power for its Texas-New Mexico electrical system to meet growing demands for electricity across the region.

In the last three months, the company has issued three separate RFPs, seeking up to 800 MW of dispatchable power, which could come from various fuel types, and up to 250 MW of additional wind power.

Proposals for up to 200 MW of additional dispatchable power are needed for delivery beginning in 2010 and 2011. Proposals for this solicitation were received in early October. In addition, proposals for an additional 600 MW of dispatchable power are being sought for delivery beginning in 2012 and 2013.

The company is requesting that the wind resources be available between 2010 and 2012 at the latest, and that they be located in the Texas portion of the SPS service area. Any new power purchase agreements would be subject to all necessary regulatory approvals, including regulatory approval in the states SPS serves.

Deadline: Dec. 15
