Florida’s Seminole Electric Cooperative has issued a request for proposals seeking up to 250 MW from renewables, including ocean energy and hydropower, beginning as early as December. Proposals are due June 13.
Seminole, a wholesale power supplier for ten electric distribution cooperatives, said it will consider all renewable technologies. Eligible technologies include ocean energy, hydropower, wind, hydrogen, waste heat, geothermal, solar photovoltaic, solar thermal, landfill gas, biomass, municipal solid waste, and anaerobic digestion.
Tampa-based Seminole said it seeks resources in Florida, including baseload resources designed for continuous operation, and intermediate/peaking type resources. Projects must have a generating capacity of 1 MW or greater.
Solicitation No. RCE 2008-B is available from Seminole’s Internet site, www.seminole-electric.com. Proposals are due June 13. Seminole said it could identify a short list by July 18. It expects to execute contracts by Oct. 17.
