Reminders to Bidders
On August 11, the Bidder Response Forms were corrected to address a formatting issue.
On August 9, Tri-State issued a revised set of Bidder Response Forms. The Firm Offer tab was changed to require that any proposal remain open, and not be revocable for one year from the proposal submittal date. The new Forms are included in the RFP Forms .zip file accessed by the link above.
On June 17, Tri-State extended the bid submittal deadline from 7/5/22 to 9/16/22.
In this RFP, no natural gas bids will be advanced to modeling.
Although the RFP states that Tri-State will consider PPA terms between fifteen (15) and twenty-five (25) years, given recent market conditions, Tri-State will also consider shorter PPA terms.
