Renewable RFP issued

Chugach Electric Association has issued a Request for Proposals for renewable and zero-carbon energy projects.  The RFP is open during a rolling review period that runs through March 2014.

Chugach is a vertically integrated, Anchorage-based cooperative electric utility.  Chugach owns generation and also buys power from other producers.  Currently Chugach’s generation mix is 88 percent natural-gas-fired, 10 percent hydro and 2 percent wind.  Chugach is seeking projects that will help reduce its reliance on gas-fired generation.  Projects from five to 50 megawatts in size will be considered.

Additional information is available at, or by emailing

Chugach is the largest electric utility in Alaska, providing power for Alaskans throughout the Railbelt through retail, wholesale and economy energy sales.
