2024 All-Source RFP
SRP has launched an All-Source RFP for Peaking Capacity.
SRP’s service territory continues to experience significant growth. This continued projected growth, combined with potential challenges with new resource development, planned coal retirements and ongoing Colorado River drought conditions, creates a need for additional power generation resources to ensure that SRP can maintain reliable electric service through the end of the decade.
Accordingly, SRP is issuing this RFP to seek additional resources that can provide at least 700 MW at the summer peak to be online as early as Dec. 1, 2028, and at least an additional 500 MW by Dec. 1, 2029, subject to load forecasts.
SRP also seeks to add up to 2,500 MW of new carbon-free resources by Dec. 1, 2029. SRP has established ambitious carbon intensity reduction goals and recognizes that not all resources that provide capacity will also provide carbon-free energy.
This RFP will also consider proposals for resources that require longer development times, estimated to be online between 2030 and 2032. Examples of long-development projects include but are not limited to non-battery-based long duration storage projects, geothermal or generation resources with new transmission.
SRP will be developing self-build options for flexible natural gas, solar and storage projects to address a portion of the resource need. Proposals submitted to the 2024 RFP will be compared to the SRP self-build options. SRP expects to present the top scoring resource options and recommendations to its Board of Directors in early 2025.
