||The Tribal Council for the Soboba Band of Luiseño Indians (Soboba Solar Project) RFP seeking qualified firms to design, engineer, procure, construct, and potentially supply or identify tax partners for a solar photovoltaic ground mounted system not to exceed 1.12 MW (DC) in capacity. The power plant will be located near San Jacinto, Riverside County, California.

||Allegany County, Maryland RFP seeking sealed proposals to provide a "turnkey" approach for a power purchase agreement to design, construct, operate and maintain for 25 years a photovoltaic system or systems. Primarily, the system(s) will be designed to provide renewable energy at a cost per kilowatt lower than currently available from traditional power suppliers. In addition, the systems must be capable of operating within the Potomac Edison service territory and utilize aggregate net metering to offset the County's electricity accounts. A mandatory site visit and pre-bid meeting will be held on July 23, 2015. The deadline for questions is August 11, 2015.

||Northern States Power Company RFP seeking up to 3 MW of photovoltaic (PV) solar generation resources from projects having a maximum capacity of 1 MW (DC) in northern and western Wisconsin. The company prefers to fulfill this RFP through a 25-year power purchase agreement.
|August 31, 2015
||Dairyland Power Cooperative RFP seeking proposals for up to 25 MW of solar energy from one or more utility-scale PV facilities with commercial operation to begin by July 1, 2016. A notice of intent to bid should be returned by July 15, 2015.

||New York City Request for Information (RFI) seeking responses from all entities involved in and supporting the renewable energy sector. This RFI is designed to identify new generation capacity rather than existing sources of renewable energy. City government currently spends between $600 million and $650 million per year on its electricity and could potentially use its purchasing power to catalyze the development of new sources of renewable power, reduce greenhouse gas emissions, and chart a path to receive 100 percent of electricity from renewable sources of energy. An information session will be held on July 30, 2015.

||Southern California Edison (SCE) Request for Offers (RFO) "SPVP 5" seeking 27 megawatts of direct current solar power from independent power producers as part of its Solar Photovoltaic Program (SPVP) via a standard 20-year power purchase agreement. This effort supports the development and interconnection of solar projects within the utility's service territory and is just one of a set of programs used by SCE to acquire power from renewable energy generation. It is designed to encourage energy production from rooftop-mounted solar photovoltaic facilities sized between 1-2 megawatts, but allows for projects from 0.5 to 10 megawatts. A bidder's web conference is scheduled on July 15.
