Proposals must rely on commercially proven technologies for renewable energy, including wind, solar photovoltaic, biomass firing or co-firing of agricultural crops and all energy crops, hydro (as certified by the Low Impact Hydropower Institute), coal mine methane, landfill gas, biogas digesters, or biomass firing or co-firing of crop residues, animal waste and woody waste.

The RFP is part of AEP's voluntary plan to add 1,000 MW of new wind or renewable energy by 2011 as a component of the company's comprehensive strategy to address its greenhouse gas emissions.

Deadline: May 30
