Rosemead, Calif., August 2, 2010 — Southern California Edison issued a request for proposals for its independent evaluator pool for 2011 and 2012.

The utility is seeking three or more independent evaluators to monitor a variety of power-procurement activities, including requests for offers for new generation, all-source generation, natural gas, renewable generation, solar photovoltaic project participants, energy commodities, bilateral negotiations and energy auctions.

Interested parties are encouraged to participate in a bidder’s conference call scheduled for Monday, Aug. 9. The deadline for proposals is Friday, Aug. 20.

Other details of SCE‘s independent evaluator request-for-proposal process include:

* SCE’s process adheres to rules established by the California Public Utilities Commission.

* A request for proposals is widely distributed and solicitation information is posted on SCE’s public-access website.
