San Diego Gas & Electric (SDG&E) has issued a request for proposals (RFP) seeking supply of renewable energy resources to help the utility meet California's mandate to derive 20% of its energy from renewable sources starting in 2010.

Through the bidding process, SDG&E is seeking energy that comes from solar, wind, geothermal, biomass and any other renewable resource that qualifies under the state's renewable portfolio standard program. The plants that produce the power can be inside or outside the SDG&E service territory.

The evaluation and selection of offers includes active participation by SDG&E's procurement review group, comprising California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) staff, consumer advocates and other non-market participants, as well as an independent evaluator. These entities are involved at all stages of the process, including the preparation of the RFP, bid evaluation and determination of the final short list of bidders. Once the evaluation process is completed, all proposed contracts are subject to CPUC review and approval.

Deadline: April 30.
