The Connecticut Clean Energy Fund (CCEF), which is administered by Rocky Hill, Conn.-based Connecticut Innovations, has received 28 proposals that total just under 315 MW of clean energy in response to the organization's second round of request for proposals (RFP) under Project 100.

Project 100 is an initiative that was created by the state's legislation in 2003 to contract at least 100 MW of clean energy by July 1, 2008. Connecticut Innovations re-issued the RFP in November 2006, requesting an additional 85 MW of renewable energy, including wind and other projects.

"This response to round two of Project 100 demonstrates the important role clean energy is playing in helping Connecticut address its long-term energy needs," says Lise Dondy, CCEF's president. "We are extremely pleased to have received over three times the potential installed capacity we were seeking."

According to a CCEF representative, two of the 28 proposals that were submitted are for wind power - one of them would be located in New York state and the other in Connecticut. A panel of industry experts will evaluate the proposals over the next two months. In March, CCEF will recommend the projects that should be considered for long-term power purchase agreements to the two Connecticut public utilities (Connecticut Light & Power and United Illuminating Co.).
