El Paso Electric (EPE) has signed a Memorandum of Understanding with New Mexico State University (NMSU) to explore the feasibility to develop a utility-scale solar and energy storage project that could supply power to the university as well as provide students and faculty a unique power distribution and generation laboratory for educational and research purposes.
To properly determine the viability of this project, EPE issued a request for proposal (RFP) today to receive quotes for the construction of a solar facility up to three megawatts in size and include energy storage.
All interested bidders are encouraged to visit epelectric.com or click here for the full details of the RFP. All proposals are due by February 5, 2019.
A Certificate of Convenience and Necessity for this project is subject to approval by the New Mexico Public Regulation Commission.
