5 5 Bid Scope & Contract  Acceptable renewable energy sources include: biomass, hydro, geothermal, solar, wind, ocean thermal, wave action and tidal action.  The renewable resource will be available for commercial operation within 36 months from contract award.  Proposed technologies shall have at least 1 year of commercial operations history in a utility environment.  Energy will be delivered directly to the existing GPA transmission system.

6 6  The renewable resource will provide energy for a minimum contract term of 10 years.  The Bidder’s renewable resource project will have a total minimum nameplate capacity of 5 MW; this may be the combination of several generation units at one site.  The renewable resource will deliver energy on a unit- contingent basis, but will provide a minimum amount of energy each year, as described in “Volume III: Draft Renewable Energy Purchase Agreement.” Bid Scope & Contract (cont.)

7 7 In addition  The bidders selected are responsible the system integration study and costs of their proposed project.  This is a multi-step bid which requires bidders to be qualified based on non-priced proposals. Qualified bidders will proceed to the next step – Priced Bid Evaluation.  GPA reserves the right to select bids from different technologies to meet generation diversification goals even if the bid is higher.  GPA may select more than one vendor for total renewable resource capacity of up to 40 MW in this solicitation.
