SDG&E launches new solicitation for renewable energy

San Diego, CA, Mar. 12, 2008 — San Diego Gas & Electric (SDG&E) announced it has issued a competitive solicitation seeking supply of renewable-energy resources to help the utility meet California’s mandate to derive 20 percent of its energy from renewable sources starting in 2010.

Through the bidding process SDG&E is seeking energy that comes from solar, wind, geothermal, biomass and any other clean, renewable resource that qualifies under the state’s renewable portfolio standard program. Bids are due April 30, 2008.

The evaluation and selection of offers includes active participation by SDG&E’s Procurement Review Group, comprised of California Public Utilities Commission staff, consumer advocates and other non-market participants, as well as an independent evaluator. Once the evaluation process is completed, all proposed contracts are subject to CPUC review and approval.
