Portland General Electric Co. (PGE) has issued a draft of a request for proposals (RFP) that is expected to open for bids in late July, seeking new electric generating resources to meet peak periods of demand for electricity and help integrate variable energy resources onto the grid.

The RFP will seek approximately 200 MW of year-round flexible and peaking resources to help supply customers with electricity during peak demand periods, help balance load and integrate increasing levels of variable energy resources, such as wind.

In addition, the RFP will ask for two seasonal peaking resources: approximately 200 MW of bi-seasonal (winter and summer) peaking supply and approximately 150 MW of winter-only peaking supply. PGE plans to bring these resources online in the 2013-2015 timeframe.
