Have renewable energy to sell?

Western Area Power Administration is looking to purchase Renewable Energy Certificates, or RECs, on behalf of several Federal agencies.

In the Request for Proposals, also known as RFP, Western is seeking up to 584,000 megawatt-hours of RECs, over a 6-year period. Learn more about the solicitation and about RECs from Western’s press release.

If you’re interested in participating, you must mail or fax a response by July 2, 2010, at 4:30 p.m., MDT. See the current RFP for details on how to submit a proposal.

What are RECs?

RECs represent the environmental benefits of renewable energy, sold separately from power generation. This request on behalf of Federal agencies will help meet the government’s renewable energy goals.
