However, in response to comments raised by the Public Utilities Commission of Nevada and interested stakeholders regarding the ability to develop additional renewable energy resources prior to the expiration of certain federal energy tax credits and other public-interest benefits, the Commission recently issued an order that requested NV Energy to accelerate issuance of the 2015 RFP and combine it with the previously-issued 2014 RFP for evaluation and negotiations with winning bidders. Bidders in the original 2014 RFP will be provided an opportunity to refresh their original proposals. To provide additional detail about the combined evaluation process for the 2014 and 2015 RFPs, and to answer questions from potential bidders, NV Energy is holding a Bidders Conference Webinar at 9:30 a.m. (PPT) on Tuesday, Feb. 3. The last day bids can be revised or submitted is Feb.16, 2015, and the company anticipates finalizing a shortlist for each of the 2014 and 2015 RFPs by April 16, 2015. Merrimack Energy Group will continue to serve as the independent evaluator for the RFPs, and PowerAdvocate will provide the response platform and related technology for the RFP process. NV Energy requests that all parties interested in becoming a bidder for the 2015 RFP should complete and submit a Bidder’s Registration and Contact Information Form that can be found on the company’s website NV Energy Renewable Energy Request For Proposals . Additional information and the process required to register for the Bidder’s Conference Webinar are available on the company’s website.

EDF Renewable Energy Announces Commercial Operation of Hereford Wind Project | San Diego Business Journal

Financial details were not disclosed. The decision to build the Hereford project in mid-2013 was critical to anchor EDF Renewable Energys 2014 and 2015 project pipeline, said Tristan Grimbert, president and CEO of EDF Renewable Energy. We leveraged the excellent development done by Lincoln Renewable Energy along with our financial and development strength with our first-tier equipment supplier and contractor relationships to successfully build the project on-time. The project commenced construction of 54 GE 1.85-megawatt, and 50 Vestas V100 2.0-megawatt wind turbines in November 2013. The project feeds into the Competitive Renewable Energy Zone transmission infrastructure which enables the high electricity demand areas in Texas to access the strong low-cost renewable generation resources of West Texas and the Texas Panhandle.
