EDISON RECEIVES 21 BID PROPOSALS FOR ITS DSM BIDDING PILOTS

 SAN DIMAS, Calif., Sept. 9 /PRNewswire/ -- Southern California Edison, a leader in energy efficiency services, programs and information, received 21 bids in response to two Demand Side Management (DSM) Requests for Proposals (RFPs) totaling 113.7 gigawatt-hours (gWh). Both RFPs solicited bid proposals from third parties to produce innovative, sustainable electricity savings for eligible Edison customers within specific Edison service regions.
 Bid proposals have been received and are currently being evaluated, with an estimated target date for announcing the Short List of Sept. 17, 1993. During the test period, the pilots will replace the utility's Energy Management Hardware Rebate Program (EMHRP) for customers eligible under these pilots in the specified geographical areas.
 One RFP involved DSM performance contracts for small office buildings within two of Edison's seven service regions. Eligible small office buildings are defined as those having less than 200 kilowatts (kW) demand. Three winning bids are to be awarded, one for each of three specified market areas. The goal of the pilot is to achieve and sustain 30 gWh of energy savings for seven years.
 The second RFP was for DSM performance contracts for industrial and large commercial buildings in the same two service regions. Eligible large commercial buildings are defined as those having more than 500 kW demand. All industrial facilities within the designated service areas will be eligible. Multiple winners will be chosen, with each winning bidder serving the entire specified market area. The pilot goal is to achieve and sustain 83.7 gWh of energy savings for three years.
 Between the two pilots, 21 bids were received from 14 individual bidders, totaling a proposed annual savings of 325 gWh.
