AMP launches RFP to procure behind-the-meter renewable generation for members

American Municipal Power (AMP) has launched a request for proposals (RFP) to procure behind-the-meter renewable generation for Hillsdale Board of Public Utilities and Coldwater Board of Public Utilities in Michigan.

AMP is seeking responses for a project located behind each cities’ meters with the primary goal of load modifying resource reduction and peaking energy needs.

Contract capacity request is for approximately 8 megawatt (ac) at a site owned by the City of Hillsdale and approximately 5 MWac at a site owned by the City of Coldwater.

Term preference for both projects is between 20-25 years.  Products are to include energy, capacity and environmental attributes.

AMP is seeking bids for full attribute, solar generation power purchase agreements with a preferred commercial operation date between January 1, 2022-June 1, 2024.

Key tenets of project consideration are project viability, price, local benefit of the resource, and equipment performance.

The Energy Authority is serving as the administrator for the RFP.
