SCE seeks 63 MW of rooftop solar from IPPs

Southern California Edison (SCE) has launched a Request for Offers (RFO), seeking up to 63-MW of solar power from independent power producers (IPP) as part of its Solar Photovoltaic Program (SPVP).

The program began in 2010 and encourages energy production from rooftop-mounted solar photovoltaic (PV) facilities sized between 500-kW and 10-MW. This RFO represents the fourth solicitation.

“SCE is committed to delivering clean energy to our customers. As a leader in renewable energy, SCE encourages the production of solar photovoltaic power within our service area and through this program we continue making progress toward California’s Renewables Portfolio Standard goal of delivering 33 percent renewable power,” said Nicole Neeman Brady, SCE’s Director of Energy Procurement. “This RFO helps provide renewable emission-free energy to our customers. We look forward to receiving offers from across our service area, particularly from central and southern Orange County.”

All purchase agreements will be reviewed and become effective after approval by the California Public Utilities Commission.
