Delmarva Power Issues RFP for Wholesale Electric Power for Delaware Customers

NEWARK, Del. (Oct. 3, 2018) – Delmarva Power today announced a Request for Proposals (RFP) to eligible vendors regarding the company's annual wholesale electric power supply procurement.  The RFP will allow the company to meet its Standard Offer Service (SOS) obligation in the state of Delaware.


SOS is the market-based, fixed-price of electricity that Delmarva Power buys on behalf of its customers who do not purchase their electricity from competing retail suppliers and who do not choose the option of hourly-priced service.


Delmarva Power is requesting proposals to supply approximately 670 megawatts (MW) of electricity. Peak load contributions by customer class include approximately:


  • 515 MW for the combined Residential, Small Commercial and Industrial (RSCI) customers
  • 120 MW for the Medium General Service-Secondary (MGS-S) customers
  • 15 MW for the Large General Service-Secondary (LGS-S) customers
  • 20 MW for the General Service-Primary (GS-P) customers


A pre-bid conference webinar for prospective bidders will be held on October 16, 2018. The conference will review the bid schedule, the RFP process improvements, and the Delmarva Power bid plan for its Delaware customers, as well as answer questions about the power supply contract.


Additional details regarding the RFP or the pre-bid conference webinar can be found online at:
