Preference will be granted to projects larger than 1 MW. Projects must be reliable, located in Florida and able to sell their electrical output to Progress Energy Florida at a cost equal to or below the cost to build new generation.

Projects must be fully operational by June 1, 2018. More information on the RFP is available here.
