Westminster, Colo.-based Tri-State Generation and Transmission Association has issued a request for proposals (RFP) for renewable energy supply.

The RFP is a first step toward supporting Tri-State's member systems in Colorado and New Mexico in supplying 10% of their energy from renewable resources by 2020, which the association says will be accomplished through a series of acquisitions over the next few years.

Tri-State is seeking resources that meet the definition of renewable resources set forth in the renewable portfolio standards for Colorado and New Mexico. Resources must be deliverable into Tri-State's transmission system via the western interconnection and be available no later than Jan. 1, 2011. Renewable energy certificates without associated energy will not be accepted under the RFP. Tri-State intends to execute project agreements or power purchase agreements by late summer.

Deadline: March 2008
