The PUD is interested in purchasing up to approximately 100 average MW from renewable resources, including wind, tidal, solar, biomass, landfill gas and geothermal. Minimum project size is 5 MW. The PUD expects it will need to add energy resources to its portfolio in the 2008-2012 time frame.

In assessing project proposals, the PUD says that it will give preference to the most economical and reliable renewable resources, which fulfill several criteria: compatibility with resource needs, cost, risk management, public benefits, and strategic and financial considerations.
