Procuring Clean Energy

Building Community-Based Renewable Energy (CBRE)

We are developing a CBRE Request for Proposal (RFP) that focuses on resources that are:

  • Renewable – Small-scale (<20 MW in aggregate) generation that is interconnected to transmission or distribution system.

  • Dispatchable Capacity – The generation is paired with a dispatchable capacity product.

  • Community Benefit – Resource provides a direct benefit to a particular community through a community-benefits agreement or direct ownership.

Through this RFP, we are looking to procure CBRE resources in support of our draft Clean Energy Plan and Integrated Resource Plan (CEP/IRP). Please visit this page for documents related to the RFP process and to learn how to bid into the RFP. Also, coming soon, we will post relevant notices as well as common questions and their answers.

It was last updated in July and does not reflect requests in queue since drafting.

The map’s layers are controlled through the folder icon in the top right hand corner:

PGE's long-term planning process (Clean Energy Plan and Integrated Resource Plan, or CEP/IRP) indicated that PGE should take action to acquire CBRE resources at a volume of 66MW by 2026, with a preference to have 155MW by 2030. As part of the regulatory process by which these actions were recommended, stakeholders provided a list of Community Benefit Indicators that they identified as preferred. PGE recommends that potential bidders to this RFP - if and when possible - align community benefit narrative to one or more of the preferred categories on this list. Alignment with this list is not a requirement to submit a bid, but is meant to serve as a guide for the types of metrics that have been suggested in the planning process.
