Feds seek proposals for Pantex wind farm via Amarillo Globe News

The Energy Policy Act of 2005 requires at least 7.5 percent of a federal agency’s annual electricity consumption come from renewable sources by fiscal year 2013, which starts Oct. 1.

In fiscal year 2010, the plant spent $2.7 million on electricity usage from Xcel Energy and uses about 7 megawatts of energy daily, according to federal data. Bidders must commit to producing at least 10 megawatts a day, a federal proposal said.

The most recent government estimate pegs the plant’s anticipated energy cost savings near $2.5 million annually.

The nuclear agency will move forward with the wind farm through an energy savings contract, which allows federal agencies to initiate projects without up-front capital costs from the federal government.

Instead, the contract likely will include a $25-million investment by the winning bidder, said Johhnie Guelker, an assistant manager at the plant.
