Platte River Power Authority seeks proposals for solar, energy storage

Platte River Power Authority is seeking proposals for at least 20 MW of new solar energy capacity and up to 5 MWh of energy storage capacity.

"Prices for battery technology are coming down and we are very interested in benefiting not only from cost savings but also the operational experience that we could use on a larger scale down the road," CEO and General Manager Jason Frisbie said in a Feb. 21 news release.

The project would need to connect to the utility's transmission system and would be used as part of a community solar program.

Platte River said it would consider proposals for a long-term power purchase agreement for solar projects that could be built and operational between June 2019 and the end of 2021. Bids are due by 4 p.m. MT on March 30.
