Appalachian Power (part of the US energy group AEP) is seeking proposals for 1.1 GW of wind, solar, battery energy storage systems (BESS), and renewable energy certificates. In a first request for proposals (RfP), the company aims to acquire up to 800 MW of wind and/or solar resources, as well as co-located and stand-alone BESS, located in Virginia or on eligible sites in West Virginia. Selected facilities must be over 10 MW for BESS and over 50 MW for solar and wind projects, and may be completed or under development, with commercial operations by 15 December 2028.

In a second RfP, Appalachian Power aims to enter into long-term power purchase agreements (PPAs) with up to 300 MW of solar and/or wind resources (above 5 MW for solar projects and above 50 MW for wind projects) commissioned by 31 December 2028. A third RfP aims to purchase renewable energy certificates (RECs).
