Public Power Current
California’s Clean Power Alliance has launched a clean energy and reliability request for offers, the California community choice aggregator said on June 14.
The RFO solicits competitive proposals to better allow CPA to meet its various energy portfolio needs, while also complying with California Public Utilities Commission procurement orders and resource adequacy requirements.
Relative to CPA’s prior RFOs, this solicitation has expanded product categories and now includes RA-only and existing thermal energy resources with preferences for those that are transitioning to cleaner operations.
CPA has also implemented changes to its RFO eligibility requirements such as expanding term limits, allowing proposers to submit bundled offers, and a fast-track process for negotiations.
