Georgia Power issues RFP for 1MW solar PV projects

Financials

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.

Further information about the solar PV RFP can be found here.

    Now that the PV industry has unquestionably entered a new growth phase, all eyes are on which technologies will win through into the mainstream of PV manufacturing. PERC, n-type, p-type bifacial, heterojunction – all have become familiar terms in the ever-growing constellation of solar cell technologies. The question is which will offer manufacturers what they are looking for in improving efficiencies and cutting costs.

    Although the past few years have proved extremely testing for PV equipment manufacturers, falling module prices have driven solar end-market demand to previously unseen levels. That demand is now starting to be felt by manufacturers, to the extent that leading companies are starting to talk about serious capacity expansions later this year and into 2015. This means that the next 12 months will be a critical period if companies throughout the supply chain are to take full advantage of the PV industry’s next growth phase.
