Notice of Release of Final RFP Documents and Bidder Registration

Entergy Louisiana, LLC (“ELL”) has posted final documents for the 2022 Request for Proposals for Renewable Resources for Entergy Louisiana, LLC (“2022 ELL Solar RFP” or “RFP”) on the 2022 ELL Renewable RFP website, https://spofossil.entergy.com/ENTRFP/SEND/2022ELLRenewablesRFP/Index.htm.

ELL appreciates the questions and comments provided by interested parties on the draft RFP documents. The final versions include revisions to the RFP documents made as a result of ELL’s consideration of the input received during the comment period and ELL’s continued review of its RFP terms.

The revisions to draft RFP documents can be seen in the redline version of the final RFP documents posted on the RFP website. The revisions include, among other things, allowing participating bidders of solar projects the opportunity to submit proposal pricing updates following the US Department of Commerce’s preliminary determination in its antidumping and countervailing duty investigation launched in response to the Auxin Solar Inc. petition filed earlier this year.

The revisions also include clarifications pertaining to geographic requirements for eligible wind resources located external to MISO’s Local Resource Zone (“LRZ”) 9 (i.e., resources in the Southwest Power Pool and MISO LRZ 8 and 10), as well as an option for those resources to meet their firm deliverability requirement utilizing a Network Integrated Transmission Service process, as opposed to only utilizing an external Network Resource Interconnection Service process.
