Missouri River Energy Services Issues Solicitation Seeking Renewable Energy Proposals

Missouri River Energy Services (MRES), based in Sioux Falls, South Dakota, is exploring options for meeting its growth in demand for renewable energy.

Through a request for proposals, MRES is seeking offers for full attribute, renewable resource power purchase agreements with a commercial operation date no later than 2024. Existing projects that meet these requirements will also be considered.

MRES is seeking projects totaling no more than 100 megawatts (MW) of renewable generation resource capacity that generate Minnesota RPS compliant renewable energy certificates, either standalone or paired with energy storage, for a term of up to 15 years.

Minimum nameplate capacity of project proposals should be no less than 10 MW.

Key tenets of project consideration are project viability, price, congestion risk, and deliverability.

Responses to the RFP are due at the end of March and it is available here.

MRES provides electricity and other energy-related services to 61 member municipalities.

MRES serves approximately 170,000 customers across four states.
