On August 21, NV Energy issued a press release reminding renewable energy developers of that it has issued a Request of Information (RFI) for renewable energy that can be provided on a short-term basis.  This solicitation is separate from NV Energy’s recently announced 2009 Renewable Energy Request for Proposals.  NV Energy will consider proposals for solar, wind, geothermal, biomass and other resources eligible for portfolio energy credits under the Nevada renewable portfolio standard.

NV Energy is now looking for proposals from entities that can deliver renewable energy to its system on or after Oct. 1, 2009 and for a period of one month to three years.


Parties interested in submitting a response to the RFI, or those seeking more information related to the RFI or renewable energy laws can contact NV Energy at: ShortTermRFI@nvenergy.com .  In addition, prospective bidders can email any questions to Ron Helbing, rhelbling@nvenergy.com.  


Bidders must submit their responses  to NV ENergy’s short term renewables solicitaion by 9:00 AM (PPT) on Sept. 2, 2009.
