Pursuant to An Act To Reform Maine’s Renewable Portfolio Standard. P.L. 2019, Chapter 477, the Maine Public Utilities Commission (MPUC) is seeking proposals from qualifying renewable generation resources for the sale of energy or renewable energy credits (RECs). To be a qualifying resource, a generation facility must meet the requirements for a Maine RPS Class 1A resource as specified in the Act and Chapter 311 (DOC) of the Commission’s rules. Bidders selected will enter into contract(s) with one or both of Maine’s investor-owned transmission and distribution utilities - Central Maine Power Company (CMP) and Versant Power (VP) (T&D utilities). Contract(s) will be for a term of 20 years, unless the Commission finds a contract for a longer term to be prudent. Proposals will be evaluated based upon the requirements and objectives stated in the Act and the Request for Proposals (RFP).
Bidders may submit questions or request additional information by email to: RPSRFPTranche2.PUC@maine.gov.
To the extent bidder inquiries elicit generally applicable information or corrections/clarifications to existing information, a Frequently Asked Questions log (FAQ Log) will be available on this site and will be updated periodically.
The RFP contact person is Faith Huntington, the Commission’s Director of Electric and Gas Utility Industries. She may be contacted by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
