Southern California Edison Seeking Rooftop Solar Projects

17 July 2015 Renewable Energy Outlook Blog

As part of its Solar Photovoltaic Program (SPVP) for Independent Power Producers, Southern California Edison (SCE) recently issued a request for offers (RFO) seeking up to 27 MW of independently-generated solar photovoltaic power. The minimum contract size for this RFO is 500 kW DC, and the maximum contract size is 10 MW DC. However, SCE has stated that the “Generating Facilities will be primarily rooftop facilities in the range of 1 to 2 MW DC.”

All power purchases will made over a 20-year term and will be made according to the terms and conditions set forth in the SPVP 5 PPAs. There are two SPVP 5 Power Purchase and Sale Agreements (each, a PPA, and collectively, the PPAs), the forms of which are posted on the documents page of the SCE RFO website (linked to below). The two forms of PPAs are referred to as “SPVP 5 PPA Not Greater than 5 MW DC” and “SPVP 5 PPA 5-10 MW DC.”

SPVP is a utility procurement program designed to advance the development of distributed solar photovoltaic projects in SCE’s service territory. This RFO is the fifth and final round of procurement for the SPVP.

The deadline for bidders to submit their bids into the SPVP 5 RFO is 12:00 (noon) Pacific Prevailing Time on Monday, September 21, 2015. Bidders must use SCE’s RFO management website to submit their bids. For more information on the SPVP 5 RFO, and to access SCE’s management website, click on the link here.
