RFP alert: Arizona Public Service expands its search for solar energy resources


Arizona Public Service Co. is expanding its existing all-source request for proposals (RFP) to seek an additional 100 MW to 150 MW of solar PV resources.

The change expands the project scope of an RFP issued in December 2020 and is intended to help advance the company’s goal to achieve a carbon-free power mix by 2050.

In the original RFP, the utility said it would procure around 600-800 MW of renewable resources and about 400-600 MW of capacity resources through an all-source RFP. These resources are expected to be in service in 2023 and 2024.

The addendum seeks an additional 100- to 150 MW photovoltaic solar resource to be owned by APS and in service by early 2023.

The entire RFP process, applicable to both the original RFP and the addendum, is monitored and reviewed by a third-party independent monitor.
