Wholesale Electric Power Procurement
Welcome to PG&E's Wholesale Electric Power Procurement website. To meet customer load, PG&E purchases wholesale electric energy and capacity from generators and suppliers. PG&E periodically conducts Solicitations / Requests for Offers (RFO) for conventional and renewable electricity. Information about PG&E's Wholesale Electric Power Procurement and RFOs will be posted on this website. When PG&E conducts a specific Solicitation / RFO to purchase new energy and/or capacity, the RFO will be announced via e-mail to potential bidders and posted below.

Renewable Feed-in Tariffs
Renewable Feed-in Tariffs (FITs) offer long-term wholesale electric energy contracts to eligible small renewable generators. There are three Renewable FIT Programs in various stages of implementation related to Public Utilities Code 399.20.
Existing E-PWF & E-SRG FITs (Assembly Bill 1969) - The California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) approved tariffs and standard contracts for both Public Water and Wastewater Facilities (E-PWF) and Small Renewable Generators (E-SRG) for projects sized up to 1.5 MW.
Pending E-ReMAT FIT (Senate Bill 32) - The CPUC is in the process of developing a revised Renewable FIT called the Electric - Renewable Market Adjusting Tariff (E-ReMAT) to implement Senate Bill (SB) 32, which increased the eligible project size up to 3 MW. The E-PWF and E-SRG tariffs will no longer be available to new applicants once the E-ReMAT tariff becomes effective.
Expected Bioenergy FIT (Senate Bill 1122) – Senate Bill (SB) 1122 adds an additional 250 MW to investor owned utility capacity for eligible bioenergy projects. PG&E’s allocation has not yet been determined by the CPUC. An informal process to implement SB 1122 was initiated by the CPUC in May 2013.
