Alliant unveils Wisconsin wind plan
RFP to be issued for assets with nominal nameplate capacity of 200MW
Alliant Energy subsidiary Wisconsin Power and Light Company is planning to issue a request for proposals (RFP) to solicit bids for wind power.
The company will consider existing, re-powered and new projects, with a preferred operational date no later than 1 September 2020.
It is seeking projects with a nameplate capacity of nominally 200MW, with proposed projects having a minimum capacity of 25MW.
Alliant will also consider sales of existing projects, develop or build transfers and power purchase agreements.
Energy output from the projects should be delivered financially to a MISO Commercial Pricing Node, including any and all costs associated with mitigating transmission congestion and/or third party transmission service.
Projects will be considered on single sites or located across multiple sites, but must demonstrate adequate development, including wind resource and site suitability and an ability to attain all applicable permits and approvals.
New projects will also need to demonstrate that they qualify for production tax credits.
Interested parties have until 3pm on 26 June to contact Alliant to start the application process.
Alliant expects to make project selection in the fourth quarter of 2017.
