REQUESTS FOR PROPOSALS FOR THE 50 MW

Despite the massive down-turn in the US market, a small northern California utility will procure 50 MW of renewables. The Sacramento Municipal Utility District (SMUD) will issue a request for proposals for the 50 MW in nameplate-rated capacity in the first quarter of 1996, confirms SMUD's Stephanie McCorkle. The utility's integrated resource planning calls for 10 MW of renewable capacity to be added to the system every year between 1996 and 2002. Direct economic cost will be an important factor in choosing the capacity, as will reducing air pollution, improving diversity and promoting local economic development. The procurement is in addition to the 50 MW in wind capacity -- consisting of Kenetech turbines -- to be on-line by 1997.
