LIPA Issues RFP For Fuel Cell Power Plant

Long Island Power Authority (LIPA) Chairman Richard M. Kessel has announced the issuance of a request for proposals (RFP) for the construction and operation of a fuel cell generation project capable of producing 10 megawatts (MW) of electricity, enough to power about 10,000 homes. The fuel cell project will be located at LIPA's West Babylon substation, where a fleet of prototype fuel cells had been tested by LIPA in recent years. The project would be available for Summer 2006. Under the terms of the RFP, LIPA is seeking a proposer that will build, own and operate a 10 MW fuel cell facility for up to a 20-year period; take full responsibility for all project development costs; utilize the LIPA-supplied site in West Babylon; demonstrate its experience and expertise in the areas of fuel cell project development, permitting, siting, construction and operation; be responsible for the cost of interconnecting with LIPA's electric distribution system, and the local natural gas distribution company; and agree to a commercial operation date of no later than July 1, 2006.

A Proposers' Conference will be held on March 1, 2005, and RFPs are due April 25. The project will be awarded on June 23. The RFP is available at http://www.lipower.org.
