Southern California Edison Company (“SCE”) is issuing this Request for Information (referred to herein as the “RFI”) to solicit submissions (“Submissions”) from developers of the products described herein (“Participants”) which include Renewable Natural Gas also known as biomethane (“RNG”) and electricity generated from RNG as defined by the California Energy Commission’s Renewable Portfolio Standard (“RPS”) Eligibility Guidebook (the ”Products”). All definitions of the Products are listed in Appendix A of the RFI instructions on the PowerAdvocate® event.
SCE’s integrated framework, the Clean Power and Electrification Pathway, outlines the most affordable path for the state to fight climate change, improve air quality, and help California achieve its goals to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Included in the ongoing implementation of the Pathway are a variety of GHG-reducing technologies, including possibly souring electricity from RNG or purchasing RNG as a fuel stock. The purpose of this RFI is to help SCE learn more about the RNG market. SCE, in its sole discretion, may use the information gained in this RFI to create future Request for Offers (“RFOs”) for RNG and/or electricity generated from RNG.
Participants intending to present Submissions, but who do not yet have an existing PowerAdvocate® account, must first register to create a username/password with PowerAdvocate® to receive access to the event (event code 92739). Users with an existing PowerAdvocate® account may request access here.
