PNM Seeks Proposals for Renewable Energy Resources

Public Service Company of New Mexico (PNM) issued a request for proposal (RFP) on January 13, 2016 for renewable energy resources totaling up to 50 megawatts of generation.

This RFP is for Renewable Energy Certificates ("RECs") and accompanying Renewable Electric Energy or for RECs without accompanying energy ("RECs-only").  PNM is looking for renewable energy resources that will be cost-effective additions to PNM's integrated system portfolio, which includes traditional generation, demand-side management and renewable sources.  Acquisition of RECs will enable PNM to continue to comply with New Mexico's Renewable Portfolio Standard ("RPS").  PNM is seeking to purchase renewable energy and associated RECs from one or more qualified Respondents up to 50 MWs of generating capacity.  PNM seeks to acquire energy and associated RECs from sources of renewable energy that are eligible to meet PNM's renewable energy requirements.  PNM will consider offers for asset purchases, design-build-transfer "turnkey") projects, or purchased power agreements ("PPA") projects in addition to RECs-only bids.
