Duke Energy Indiana seeks energy sources

October 25, 2007

Duke Energy Indiana issued a request for proposals Wednesday, seeking bids for power generated from renewable energy sources.

The company said it is interested in talking with potential suppliers about purchased power agreements or purchasing a generating facility.

Officials said the request for proposals is specifically aimed at renewable sources, including sun, wind, water and organic matter. The company, seeking up to 200 megawatts by 2011, said proposals must be submitted by Jan. 15.

"We are committed to doing more to develop and use renewable energy," said Jim Stanley, president of Duke Energy Indiana. "We would like to diversify our supplies with more green power, and we are looking for supplies that are the right combination of price, reliability and flexibility."

Duke has approximately 4 million U.S. customers and has nearly 37,000 megawatts of electric generating capacity in the Midwest and the Carolinas and natural gas distribution services in Ohio and Kentucky.
