hydro and wind partners
bid into Massachusetts
Clean Energy RFP
BOSTON -- The race is on between major clean energy developers hoping to score long-term, wholesale power contracts with Massachusetts electric utilities.
By Thursday's noon deadline, thick packets were delivered to the state's Department of Energy Resources by at least five partnerships proposing massive, utility-scale renewable energy projects to serve customers in the Bay State.
The Massachusetts Clean Energy RFP, or request for proposals, was drafted last year in response to Gov. Charlie Baker's 2016 energy bill. The bill requires that the utilities procure around 9,450,000 megawatt-hours of wind, solar, hydro or energy storage -- so-called "Class I renewables" -- to meet the state's clean energy goals.
