Ontario launches first RFQ phase of renewables programme

The Ontario Power Authority (OPA) has published the first request for qualifications phase of the Large Renewable Procurement (the LRP I RFQ).

The LRP I RFQ has been revised based on the comments received from stakeholders during the draft RFQ comment period. A blackline of the changes (from draft to final) has also been posted. These and all other posted materials are available in the Program Resources section of the LRP website.

The Qualification Submission period begins on July 14, 2014, and the Qualification Submission Deadline will be September 4, 2014, at 3:00 p.m. Eastern Prevailing Time (EPT).

Last week we had announced that Ontario Power Authority OPA had issued a tender process by launching a request for proposals (RFP) to hire financial advisors for its “Large Renewable Competitive Procurements”.

Other important dates relevant to the LRP I RFQ are listed below and found in section 2.2 of the LRP I RFQ:
