Phoenix-based Arizona Public Service (APS) has issued a request for proposals (RFP) from power aggregators for the delivery of at least 1,500 MWh from generators located at or near customers. These distributed energy system sources include roof-top solar, wind, biogas, biomass, geothermal, hybrid wind, renewable natural gas and hydropower technologies.

APS says its goal for this solicitation is to assist in satisfying the distributed provision of the Arizona Corporation Commission's renewable portfolio standard of 30% renewable energy from distributed sources by 2025.

According to the U.S. Department of Energy, APS net metering rules allow distributed generators with a capacity of up to 100 kW and a total enrollment of 15 MW.

Deadline: Sept. 22
