SCE Solicitation Includes Energy Efficiency Measures, Energy Storage, And Generation

Today Southern California Edison (SCE) launched a Request for Offers (RFO) for Local Capacity Requirements (LCR) for resources that will help enhance the reliability of the power grid in specific geographic locations.

“This is the first time that SCE will launch a solicitation of this type. It’s meaningful because it compares all resources at the same time in an ‘apples to apples’ situation,” said Steven Eisenberg, vice president of Energy Contracts for SCE. “This RFO reflects our commitment to having the right mix of energy solutions to meet the reliability and affordability needs of all our customers, while encouraging conservation and new technology solutions.”

SCE is seeking new resources to replace aging gas-fired generation resources that use ocean water (also known as “once-through cooling,” or OTC) for keeping equipment at the correct temperature because California water regulations require those generation plants to substantially reduce their reliance on ocean water or to permanently close. Through this solicitation, SCE seeks to secure much-needed capacity from a variety of resources in the West Los Angeles Basin and Ventura/Santa Barbara geographic regions to replace the retiring OTC resources. Products solicited in the RFO include:

  • Demand response solutions
  • Energy efficiency programs and products
  • Energy storage technologies
  • Power from renewable resources, such as solar, wind, small hydro, biomass/biogas and geothermal
  • Distributed generation, such as photovoltaic solar panels on the rooftops of commercial buildings
  • Generation from industrial combined heat-and-power systems
  • Gas-fired generation

Additional information is available online.

The LCR RFO is being issued in accordance with the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) Decision ( D)13-02-15 Authorizing Long Term Procurement for Local Capacity Requirements and SCE’s Track I SCE LCR Procurement Plan Pursuant to D.13-02-15 recently approved by the CPUC’s Energy Division in accordance with D.13-02-015.
