Requests for Proposals

Welcome to the Duke Energy Progress website for our request for proposals (RFP) for renewable energy resources. As part of our balanced solution for meeting the future energy needs of our growing region, we are seeking information on the availability of renewable and alternative electric generation.

At this site, you will also find information related to our various RFPs, including bidding deadlines, frequently asked questions, documents required for bidding and general communications pertaining to the RFP. The RFP is an ongoing request designed to meet the needs of multiple long-term planning requirements. Information will be posted to this site from time to time, and interested parties are encouraged to check frequently for updates. 

Waste-to-Energy Development Information Sheet

Under North Carolina’s Session Law 2007-397 (Senate Bill 3), electric power suppliers are required to meet a certain percentage of energy needs from renewable resources or energy efficiency. There are specific compliance requirements through the use of swine and poultry waste resources. This document is intended solely to provide general information to those developing waste-to-energy generation projects with the intention to sell energy, Renewable Energy Certificates (RECs), or both to a utility. This information sheet is not all encompassing. Generator owners are responsible for consulting with appropriate legal and energy professionals in determining all requirements for successful project development. Nothing in this Information sheet should be considered an offer or acceptance of terms or conditions for a Power Purchase Agreement (“PPA”) or an Interconnection Agreement.
