The contracts will include tolling agreements which have dispatchable as well as non-dispatchable qualifying facilities resources, financial call options and resource-adequacy capacity products.

“We believe an open, fair, and transparent solicitation for capacity and energy from independent suppliers is one of the most effective ways to build our future portfolio,” said Kevin Cini, SCE vice president, Energy Supply and Management. 

SCE also recently announced a solicitation for short-term and long-term contracts for projects powered by solar, wind, biomass, biogas, small hydro, and geothermal fuels to expand its portfolio of renewable power. Currently, SCE is the nation’s leading purchaser of renewable energy.

SCE is also looking into launching another renewable solicitation for solar photovoltaic projects that will complement SCE’s 250-megawatt rooftop solar installation program.
