Bids open for CleanPowerSF

Bidding has opened for power providers interested in selling electricity to San Francisco residents through the Pacific Gas & Electric Corp.-owned grid.

The San Francisco Public Utilities Commission on Thursday released its request for proposals for a Community Choice Aggregation program named CleanPowerSF.

Community Choice Aggregation laws were adopted by California in 2002 to foster power-sector competition. The bid documents were approved Tuesday by lawmakers.
Bidders are urged to sell 360 megawatts of power into San Francisco — roughly the amount of power produced at the Potrero Power Plant — and to provide more than half of the electricity from renewable sources by 2017.

Two organizations have already registered interest in bidding on the project. Bids are due by Dec. 29.
