PG&E Pursues New Power Supplies

LCG, November 4, 2004--Yesterday Pacific Gas and Electric Company (PG&E) issued two Requests for Offers (RFOs) for long-term power supply contracts that total 2,200 MW of power, with about 1,200 MW to be available by 2008 and the remainder by 2010.

The RFO follows PG&E's long-term resource plan that was filed with the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) in July 2004. In the resource plan, PG&E proposed a 50/50 mix of utility-owned generating facilities and wholesale generator contracts. The RFO criteria for utility-owned generation includes all fuel types and technologies for new, dispatchable facilities with a capacity of at least 25 MW. Similarly, the RFO criteria for long-term contracts is for peaking capacity of at least 25 MW. With respect to renewable energy supplies, a process is already underway at PG&E for additional intermediate and long-term contracts.

PG&E expects the CPUC to issue a final decision on the long-term resource plan by the end of the year. The initial responses to the RFOs are due January 14, 2005, and PG&E plans to submit the executed contracts to the CPUC in June 2005.
