Capacity RFP in CT

Connecticut regulators plan to launch a request for proposals to obtain additional power from generation, demand-side reduction, conservation and energy efficiency projects in the state.

The new capacity is intended to reduce the impact of federally mandated congestion charges in Connecticut. The Department of Public Utility Control, which had given preliminary approval for the RFP, issued a final decision on Sept. 13. The RFP will be issued Sept. 15, the DPUC said.
