Georgia Power issues RFP for 1MW solar PV projects


Georgia Power has issued a request for proposals (RFP) for up to 1MW of solar PV energy projects that will be used as part of the company’s Green Energy program. Georgia Power is looking for solar PV systems that are at least 100kW and under a contract term of 10 years. The company will admit bids up to 15 cents per kWh including interconnection costs. Solar energy for the RFP is required on or before June 1, 2012.

The company further advised that proposed facilities should not be net metered and must be connected to either Georgia Power’s transmission or distribution grid or the integrated transmission system. Generators are required to sell 100% of the solar output from the project to Georgia Power and must meet the Green-e Energy National Standard for Renewable Electricity Products benchmarks. Bids for the RFP are due by July 11.

    Forecasting the evolution of a young, dynamic industry is by definition an uncertain business, and solar is no exception. Rarely, if ever, do the numbers broadcast by any of the various bodies involved in the PV prediction game tally, and even historical deployment rates remain the subject of hot debate. The paradox is that getting forecasts broadly right is going to become increasingly important over the next few years, particularly for those involved in producing the equipment that will support whatever levels of demand come to pass.
