Connecticut, Massachusetts and Rhode Island have received more than 30 clean energy project proposals in response to a three-state RFP. The three states aim to leverage their combined resources through collaboration. “By working together with neighboring states we can make the most efficient use of our resources to attract new clean energy projects at the lowest possible cost for ratepayers while advancing our interests in reducing emissions of greenhouse gases,” said Connecticut Governor Daniel Malloy. “The joint procurement process opens the possibility of procuring large-scale projects and transmission to deliver clean energy on a scale that no single state could secure on its own.” The response to this historic RFP include proposed projects ranging in size from 20 MW to more than 400 MW. There were 8 bids for wind projects, 18 for solar, 1 for fuel cells, and 6 combining wind, hydro, solar, energy storage and transmission. Proposed project locations included Connecticut, Maine, Vermont, New York, and eastern Canada. For more information about the results of this RFP, read a press release by CT DEEP here.
