Austin Energy Receives Proposals for Utilizing Solar Energy
Christopher Calnan wrote in this week’s Austin Business Journal.
Austin Energy received 100 proposals from 35 companies after soliciting bids in February for solar-and-wind generated electricity. The city-run utility got an overwhelming response in its search to replace alternative energy sources, with a request for proposals to supply 200 megawatts of electricity, as it plans to offset the loss of power capacity under expiring contracts.
