Avista, a Spokane, Wash.-based utility, has issued a request for proposals (RFP) based on resource acquisition goals identified in its 2009 Electric Integrated Resource Plan (IRP).

Through the RFP process, Avista is seeking to acquire approximately 35 MW of long-term qualified renewable energy to be supplied by the end of 2012 in order to take advantage of federal and state tax incentives.

The 2009 IRP identifies a goal of approximately 150 MW of wind power capacity by the end of 2012. The company is seeking proposals from various types of qualifying renewables, including wind, solar, geothermal and biomass, as part of this process.

Avista will host a conference call for potential bidders on Sept. 30.
