We Energies Solicits 75 MW of Renewable Resources

Wisconsin Electric (WE) has issued a Request for Proposals (RFP) soliciting bids for one or more contracts totaling up to 75 MW of renewable energy generating capacity. The RFP is in response to recent electric reliability legislation, which calls for the investor-owned utilities in the eastern part of the state to add a combined total of 50 MW of renewable energy generating capacity to their energy mix by the end of 2000. The WE share of the state requirement is 27 MW.

WE is soliciting for significantly more renewables capacity than the utility is legally responsible for "in order to capture potential economies of scale, provide an opportunity for larger projects to bid and provide strategic business options as we continue to assess the renewable energy market." The deadline for proposals is October 1, 1998.

This latest RFP follows a 5 mw solicitation issued in March and the announcement this spring that WE will build two utility-scale wind turbines in 1999 for its Energy For TomorrowTM program.
