--- PNM, New Mexico’s largest electric utility, has issued a request for proposals (RFP) for renewable energy resources totaling 150,000 megawatt-hours produced and delivered to customers in 2016.
PNM will consider cost-competitive offers for asset purchases, design-build-transfer projects or purchased power agreements, in addition to renewable energy certificate (or REC-only) bids. (RECs are certificates that document that energy was generated by a renewable resource.)
Projects should be located in or deliver electricity to customers in New Mexico. REC-only purchases must be from a facility located in New Mexico. Renewable energy sources sought include wind, solar, geothermal, hydropower and biomass technologies. Fossil fuel and nuclear resources will not be considered.
Currently, PNM utilizes both wind and solar to serve customers and has a proposal for additional wind and solar resources in 2014 and 2015 before state regulators. Next year, PNM customers will begin receiving geothermal energy from a newly-constructed facility in southern New Mexico.
PNM will host a pre-bid conference and live webinar Monday, Nov. 25, 2013, from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. MST for project developers interested in submitting proposals.
