This solicitation will be SCE’s first open, competitive call for additional renewable power contracts under the Renewables Standard Contracts (RSC) program.

Proposals are due Sept. 8, and a Web conference for interested parties will be hosted by SCE on Aug. 10. SCE expects to execute contracts from this solicitation in November and submit completed contracts to the California Public Utilities Commission for approval by January 2011.

Participants may submit offers to sell Product to SCE from offers in one or more of the following two categories; RSC for Projects not greater than 5 MW; RSC for Projects not greater than 20 MW.

The Term of any RSC can be 10, 15 or 20 years.
