The Salt River Project is planning to issue a request for proposals in January 2018 seeking 100 MW of renewable energy from projects in and outside of its greater Phoenix metropolitan area service territory.
SRP will consider solar, wind, geothermal and biomass projects that can begin operation by the end of 2020. The not-for-profit public power utility said it will also consider projects that include a battery storage component.
Details and a date to issue for RFP will be disclosed in January, the company said in a Dec. 14 news release.
SRP's 2017 portfolio included 838 MW of renewable energy from solar, wind, biomass, geothermal and hydroelectric sources. The company in November reached an agreement to keep the coal-fired Navajo power plant, of which it is the single largest owner, operating through 2019.
