Mississippi Power announced a request for proposals for solar photovoltaic renewable resources, beginning today. Qualifying proposals submitted through this RFP will afford Mississippi Power an opportunity to review market offerings of RFP resources.
The submitted projects must be at least 20 MWAC. Mississippi Power will consider proposals for 25-year term energy-only power purchase agreements for solar photovoltaic renewable resources from bidders who are not affiliates of Mississippi Power or Southern Company. Mississippi Power would receive all the environmental attributes from the projects.
The company will determine whether there are economic and viable energy projects suitable to meet the needs of its customers. Resources must be located in Mississippi and must be directly interconnected with Mississippi Power’s transmission system.
Bids for the RFP must be received by 6 p.m. CST on March 15, 2022. Head here for more details.
Mississippi Power, a subsidiary of Southern Company, has nearly 191,000 customers in 23 southeast Mississippi counties. Mississippi Power currently has 160 MW of approved solar energy capacity.
Have you checked out our YouTube page?
We have a ton video interviews and additional content on our YouTube page. Recently we debuted Power Forward! -- a collaboration with BayWa r.e. to discuss higher level industry topics as well as best practices / trends for running a solar business today.
Our longer running side project is The Pitch -- in which we have awkward discussions with solar manufacturers and suppliers about their new technology and ideas so that you don't have to. We've discusses everything from residential rail-less deck attaching and home solar financing to large-scale energy storage value stacking and utility-driven new home solar + storage microgrids.
We also post our Project of the Year announcements there! Interviews with this year's winners will be up starting the week of Nov. 8. Head there and subscribe today to stay on top of all this extra stuff.
