May 23 (Renewables Now) - Portland General Electric Co (NYSE:POR), or PGE, on Tuesday said its request for proposals (RfP) for 100 average MW of renewable power resources is now open for bids.

Having earlier this year released a draft RfP, the utility was given the go-ahead for the bidding process by the Oregon Public Utility Commission on May 16. The deadline for bids is June 15.

PGE, which serves 877,000 customers in Oregon, is looking for projects at least 10 MW in size to be added to its portfolio by 2021. Proposals can include different technologies such as geothermal, biomass, biogas, solar, wind or hydropower. Bidders could also offer power purchase agreements (PPAs) or facilities to be owned and operated by PGE. The company said it might choose a single resource or a mix of resources to achieve the targeted renewable energy.
