Yes, as long as they are relevant to the RFP.
Responses to questions will be provided as soon as practical. Response times will vary depending upon the complexity of the question.
AECC will accept proposals past the deadline, but the date of submission may be considered in part of the evaluation (quality of proposal).
AECC expects any accepted proposal to enter the network resource study in May 2024, as part of the SPP aggregate study process, or as soon as practical in early 2024 if the process timeline is changed by SPP.
Development asset sale is not preferred but would be considered if it can provide economic, reliability, or strategic benefits.
A tolling agreement is not preferred but would be considered if it can provide economic, reliability, or strategic benefits.
Respondents should explain pricing if not intended to be applied to the accreditable capacity of each resource each season.
AECC_CSWS is AECC’s SPP load node.
Either location is acceptable in responses.
AECC’s expectation is that short-term projects presently be under the active control of the Respondent or otherwise articulated in that regard and recommend that long-term proposals include the status of site control and readiness.
