Newark, Del.-based Delmarva Power, a subsidiary of Pepco Holdings Inc., has issued a request for proposals (RFP) for bids from onshore wind power providers from across the region to obtain competitively priced renewable energy for its Delaware customers.

Delmarva Power supported state legislation in 2007 requiring that 20% of the energy supplied to its customers by 2019 be from renewable sources. Thus far, only a long-term offshore wind proposal has been explored to meet this goal.

The utility is looking to buy renewable energy credits and energy for terms of five to 25 years. This request for competitive onshore wind bids is part of Delmarva's integrated resource planning process, which began in 2006.

In addition to land-based wind, Delmarva Power expects to follow up with RFPs for other sources of renewable supply, such as solar energy.

Deadline: Contact Delmarva
