Rhode Island Energy will be issuing a new Request for Proposals (RFP) to solicit approximately 1200MW of new offshore wind. Rhode Island Energy is expected to issue its RFP in October, with proposals being due in early 2024 and a potential selection being made in Summer 2024.
The new RFP will be released to coincide with offshore wind RFP procurement efforts in Massachusetts and Connecticut, thereby driving an offshore wind industry opportunity and economies of scale across southern New England. Responses to the RFP would be evaluated by Rhode Island Energy in consultation with the Office of Energy Resources and Division of Public Utilities and Carriers.
