Duke Energy Requesting Proposals for New Power Generation Sources

Duke Energy is asking for proposals on acquiring new, diverse power generation capacity for its Indiana customers.
Duke Energy Requesting Proposals for New Power Generation Sources

“We are continuing a transition to cleaner energy and are focused on reducing carbon emissions from our Indiana power plants,” said Duke Energy Indiana President Stan Pinegar.

“We’re soliciting the market for a diverse range of new power generation capacity, and this request for proposals gives developers the opportunity to let us know what may be available. Our objective is a responsible transition to cleaner power for customers who count on us to deliver energy that’s affordable and available at all hours and in all seasons.”

In December, Duke Energy submitted an integrated resource plan to state utility regulators on how it will meet its customers’ capacity and energy needs using a diverse mix of power generation resources, as well as energy efficiency programs. Indiana utilities update their plans every three years. One of the outcomes of Duke Energy’s recent Indiana plan is a request for proposals for new power resources. The company is looking for:

  • Up to 1,100 megawatts of intermittent generation, specifically renewable energy generation – solar, wind, hydro or other commercially viable renewable energy technologies, including combinations with battery storage.
  • Up to 1,300 megawatts of non-intermittent generation – electric generation that is dispatchable on demand, such as natural gas combustion turbines, combinedcycle units and stand-alone battery storage.
