SDG&E issued its 2018 IDER Request for Offers (“RFO”) on January 10, 2018 in accordance with Decision (“D.”)16-12-036. In this RFO, SDG&E is soliciting offers from resources to defer distribution projects that otherwise would have been completed to maintain system safety and reliability (that is, traditional distribution upgrades or build out).  Product types eligible for this solicitation are: energy efficiency, demand response, renewables, energy storage and distributed generation.

SDG&E will host one bidder outreach event on January 26, 2018 and will be an in-person event for all resource types (with dial-in / webinar available for those who cannot attend in-person). Participation in this event is NOT mandatory to submit an offer.

To be considered for this RFO, an offer must be uploaded to the PowerAdvocate ® Website in accordance with the RFO Protocols no later than 12:00 PM Pacific Prevailing Time, on February 9, 2018.

More detailed information, including the RFO Protocols and offer form are available on SDG&E’s RFO website:

All questions or other communications regarding this RFO should be submitted via email to BOTH and (the Independent Evaluator).  The deadline to ask questions related to this RFO is February 2, 2018.  Questions received after this deadline may not receive a response.  

Thank you,
