    Dive Brief: Southern California Edison this week issued a request for offers, seeking a variety of renewable and distributed energy resources to increase reliability in an at-risk portion of the grid. The utility is seeking between 15 MW and 55 MW of resources, including energy storage, demand response, permanent load shift, combined heat and power, fuel cells, solar PV paired with energy storage and renewable distributed generation. SCE is seeking to prevent blackouts related to a "transmission-related contingency" in the the Santa Barbara area. Eligible resources must be connected to a circuit, load or lower-level substation served by the Goleta 220/66-kilovolt substation.
