Arizona, US based electric utility Arizona Public Service Co (APS) has launched an all-source request for proposals (RFP) round for 2022, seeking between 1 to 1.5 GW of power generation capacity, comprising 600 MW to 800 MW of renewable resources.

The RFP is open to all technologies, including both supply as well as non-supply side resources including solar, wind and energy storage technologies. It will accept proposals for existing or new resources for the following supply side or front of the meter (FTM) technologies including solar+storage.

It aims for the capacity contracted to come online between 2025 beginning through June 2027. Minimum project capacity sought is 5 MW.

In case the tender receives a significant number of proposals, APS said it will prioritize projects coming online in 2025, compared to those coming online in 2026.
