Evansville-based CenterPoint Energy Indiana South is opening a new Request For Proposals for a variety of renewable energy resources. The utility says it is seeking a combination of resources such as wind, solar and battery storage, as well as thermal and demand-side resources, to meet the needs of its electric customers in southwest Indiana.

The utility says the RFP will help identify alternative generation technologies that can provide “fully accredited capacity” by March 2027.

“As we continue our electric generation resource transition, we are looking for additional resources that can contribute to our diversified portfolio to provide safe, reliable and cost-effective electric service to our customers,” said Steve Greenley, senior vice president of generation development.

Later this year, CenterPoint plans to begin its 2022 Integrated Resource Plan, an analysis conducted every three years used to determine the best mix of generation and demand side resources to meet customers’ needs for the next 20 years.

The utility serves about 150,000 customers throughout southwest Indiana.
