We are currently accepting wholesale power supply proposals
On August 1, 2022 PVREA issued a Request for Proposal (RFP) for power supply resources.
The RFP gives PVREA the opportunity to explore power supply options while remaining focused on reliability, maintaining some of the lowest electric rates in the region, and consuming fewer natural resources.
PVREA will consider bids for Partial-Requirements of up to 117 MW of power supply services in the form of renewable Power Purchase Agreements (PPA) or Firm 7x24 Block PPAs with delivery to its service area in Northern Colorado. PVREA will also consider bids for Full-Requirements service of up to 280 MW of power supply resources with delivery to its service area.
PVREA is considering bids in conjunction with High Plains Power, Inc (HPP) of Central Wyoming. HPP is requesting proposals for up to 120 MW of power supply resources with delivery to its service area in Central Wyoming. Both PVREA and HPP will consider bids for Full-Requirements and Partial-Requirements.

Request for Proposals Q&A
A full description of requested power generation specifications can be found online at www.guernsey.us/rfp/HP-PV-RFP-2022.
By requesting additional renewable generation sources to supplement or replace a portion of its current power supply, PVREA would bring additional carbon-free generation to its members. More information about our 80 by 30 goal can be found online at www.pvrea.coop/80by30.
Partial-Requirements means we are considering products to supplement or replace a portion of our current power supply. Volumes considered for the Partial-Requirements bids must be between 10 MW and 117 MW.
Full-Requirements means PVREA is considering service to serve its total current and future needs for capacity and energy, scheduling, and load-following services.
As a cooperative, we understand the benefits of partnering with other co-ops to benefit from the economies of scale related to contracting, building, and maintaining generation resources. HPP has also requested similar products and timeframes. Bid proposals may seek to fulfill the requirements of both PVREA and HPP.
