OPPD Capacity and Related Energy RFP

Published:February 15, 2023

NAEMA is posting this RFP on behalf of our member Omaha Public Power District (OPPD).

The Omaha Public Power District (OPPD) is a publicly owned electric utility that services 13 counties in southeast Nebraska. OPPD is a network transmission customer and member of the Southwest Power Pool (SPP). OPPD is evaluating supply options for future needs and is seeking Proposals.

All Proposals provided in response to this RFP must include either: 1) capacity; 2) capacity and an energy product with an option; or 3) capacity and an on-peak energy (5×16) product. The capacity and energy products must meet the requirements for accreditation and dispatch as defined by the SPP Open Access Transmission Tariff, Integrated Marketplace Protocols, and Planning Criteria. To receive final selection and a contract, OPPD will need to be able to procure firm SPP network transmission service to deliver power from the source within SPP to OPPD’s load, and OPPD reserves the right to reject Proposals if OPPD determines in its sole discretion that procuring said firm transmission service is uneconomical. Parties with sources physically located outside of the SPP footprint are required to retain a firm transmission path from the source to the SPP border for the full duration of the contract, while OPPD will utilize firm SPP network transmission service for the remainder of the path. OPPD may also elect to choose deliverable capacity (summer season) from a resource that has deliverability to the SPP Balancing Authority Area based upon the results of the October 1, 2023 SPP Deliverability Study.  The RFP is below:
