Background

From October 2013 until September 2015, the CAWCD Board of Directors and staff had convened several meetings, workshops, and retreats to discuss the future of the Navajo Generating Station (NGS) and power alternatives. In October 2015, the CAWCD Board adopted the Post-NGS Power Strategy that calls for the diversify CAP’s energy portfolio. Most recently, the CAWCD “Power Task Force” was convened, which is chaired and comprised of CAWCD Board Members. The scope of the Task Force was to review the operation and policy considerations related to the potential closing of the NGS and its impact on CAP. 

Conclusion

The Power Task Force has concluded as of the June 22, 2017, meeting. The Task Force provided recommendations to CAP staff on the criteria that will be incorporated in a Request for Proposal (RFP). The product of the RFP will be several portfolios based on cost, renewables, Arizona energy providers, and diversification which will be brought to the Finance, Audit, and Power Committee for consideration and recommendation.
