Salt River Project continues to experience significant increases in customer electricity demand as Phoenix and Maricopa County lead the nation in population growth and economic development.
To meet customers’ growing needs, SRP has issued a Request for Proposal for additional power generation resources of all types to meet summer peak capacity needs. SRP is seeking competitive proposals for up to 400MW of peak generating capacity by summer 2024, and another 600MW by summer 2026, for a total up to 1,000MW by summer of 2026.
Resources selected through this all-source RFP process will also support SRP’s 2035 Sustainability Goals and SRP’s goal to add 2,025MW of new utility-scale solar by 2025. The requested generation is needed in addition to SRP’s recently announced contracts for new renewable resources and plans to expand its Coolidge Generating Station.
SRP will consider all technologies and currently serves customer energy needs from generation produced with a diverse fuel mix including nuclear, coal, hydroelectric, natural gas, battery storage and renewable resources including solar, wind, biomass, and geothermal.
Respondents to the all-source RFP can view the details and register here: srp.net/all-source-rfp. Registration enables access to all RFP-related documents. As outlined, SRP will offer a web conference for respondents on November 16th, 2021 and is requesting bid proposals by January 11th, 2022.
