SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Western is seeking interest from any supplier regarding the long-term purchase of renewable energy to supplement any one or more of, or possibly combinations of, four regions. These regions span a large area, including Arizona, New Mexico, Utah, Colorado, and Wyoming, but are connected by contiguous transmission lines. Western would prefer renewable energy with RECs, but will entertain offsets on price for renewable energy without RECs. Delivery points and approximate amounts of energy desired for each region are listed in the RFI. Currently, Western is only requesting information concerning renewable energy priced at or below $100 per MWh.
