Start date: 09/11/19

End date: 10/25/19

Project Description:

Platte River Power Authority ("Platte River") provides reliable, low-cost, environmentally-responsible electricity to the communities of Estes Park, Fort Collins, Longmont and Loveland, Colorado. The current generation portfolio consists of coal-fired baseload units, natural gas peaking units, hydropower purchases through long-term contracts with the Western Area Power Administration (WAPA), wind generation facilities, and solar generation facilities. Platte River is interested in seeking additional solar energy in a timeframe that will allow the Bidder to take advantage of current renewable energy tax credits. Platte River is not seeking renewable energy credits without energy generated from the associated renewable generation facility. Demonstration projects will not be evaluated under this Request for Proposals process - only commercially-proven technologies will be considered.

The Request for Proposals document linked below identifies the schedule of submittal dates for the project.
