Renewable Electricity Program

The Government of Alberta announced that the Alberta Electric System Operator (AESO) will launch the first competition of the Renewable Electricity Program (REP) on March 31, 2017 with a Request for Expressions of Interest (REOI).  Additional details with respect to Round 1 and the REOI stage will be available here on March 31, 2017.

As detailed in a previous blog post with respect to the REP process, the stakeholder comments on the key provisions of the Renewable Electricity Support Agreement (RESA) and the first competition will procure up to 400 megawatts of renewable electricity.

The AESO is hosting an REOI information session at 1:30 p.m. on April 18, 2017 at the Westin Hotel in Calgary, Alberta.  Those wishing to attend may do so in person or via webinar and can RSVP by emailing their attendance preference to rep@aeso.ca.
