RFO Alert: PG&E seeking 176 MW of new solar projects


In case you missed it, PG&E issued a Request for Offers, seeking 176.15 MW of new, front-of-the-meter solar projects. The deadline for submissions is May 6, and PG&E anticipates executing agreements and seeking approval of those agreements with the California Public Utilities Commission this summer.

PG&E’s Spring 2022 Solar Choice RFO seeks a variety of projects sized between 0.5 and 20 MW each and requires all projects to be online by December 31, 2024.

“These new projects will directly contribute to the continued growth of PG&E’s renewable energy customer programs — which have experienced steadily increasing customer enrollment over the past few years,” said Fong Wan, senior vice president, Energy Policy Procurement, PG&E.

The projects will be built at various locations within the company’s service area and will directly support growth of PG&E’s Solar Choice program, which offers customers an easy way to go solar without installing rooftop solar panels.

Through the program, customers can purchase either 50% or 100% of their electricity from a solar project generating power in Central and Northern California.

Projects developed through PG&E’s renewable energy customer programs, such as Solar Choice, are in addition to requirements under California’s Renewable Portfolio Standard (RPS). Customer participation in these programs directly supports newly developed renewable clean energy on the electric grid.
