2016 Customer Demand Response RFP
Proposals due 9/26/2016
Minnesota Power (MP), a division of ALLETE, Inc., is seeking power supply proposals for up to a nominal 300 MW of demand response products located at a customer site where load is served by MP under the Large Power or Large Light and Power Service Schedule and the demand is greater than five (5) MW, beginning in the 2019 to 2023 timeframe. MP seeks cost-effective demand response resources that utilize the capability of MP’s large industrial customers to curtail their load for electric system emergencies or market economics and provide capacity that is accreditable under current Midcontinent Independent System Operator (MISO) Resource Adequacy rules. Proposals must reflect the cost and characteristics of the demand response resource to curtail load automatically. Agreements are contingent upon Minnesota Public Utilities Commission (MPUC) approval and may require associated modifications to Electric Service Agreements also subject to MPUC approval.
