Suppliers of various wholesale energy products may present offers to Silicon Valley Clean Energy so that we can continue providing competitively priced, carbon free retail service. SVCE will issue Request for Offers (RFOs) when specific product needs arise.
Community Power Purchase Program
We are currently designing a program to encourage the development of locally-based carbon free power plants by offering to enter into long term agreements to purchase this power. We anticipate rolling it out in 2018.
2017 Request for Offers – Carbon Free Energy with Storage
SVCE, along with Monterey Bay Community Power (MBCP), solicited offers for Carbon Free Energy with Storage.
The goal of this Joint RFO is for SVCE and MBCP to each enter into one or more long-term Power Purchase and Sale Agreements (PPAs) to secure up to 700 GWh per year of energy, combined, from Carbon Free generation facilities. For Solar PV generating facilities to bid into this RFO, the offer had to contain an Energy Storage Facility.
