The Connecticut Department of Energy and Environmental Protection has issued a request for proposals (RFP) to solicit offers for certain Connecticut Class I renewable energy sources, including anaerobic digestion, offshore wind and fuel cells.
Eligible anaerobic digestion projects must have a nameplate capacity of greater than 1 MW but less than 5 FW and may include paired and colocated energy storage. According to the RFP, Class I qualified clean energy resources smaller than 1 MW may not be aggregated.
Eligible off shore wind projects must have a nameplate capacity of greater than 2 MW. Eligible fuel cell projects without combined-heat-and-power (CHP) must have a nameplate capacity greater than 2 MW but less than 20 MW, while eligible fuel cell projects with CHP must have a nameplate capacity of at least 2 MW and a combined electric and heating efficiency of at least 60 percent.
