New York State Electric & Gas (NYSEG), a subsidiary of AVANGRID, is seeking innovative solutions to address the need for electricity system upgrades in Wyoming County in Western New York. The company has issued a Request for Proposals for bidders offering distributed generation, demand response or energy efficiency programs, energy storage or other resources to ensure continued reliable service to the 1,600-plus residential and small commercial customers served by the company's substation in the Town of Java. NYSEG issued the request as an alternative to making direct investments in its system to serve the area.

Successful proposals, determined based on their ability to meet reliability requirements at a reasonable cost, will be expected to be in service January 1, 2018. The company is planning pre-bid conferences on February 19, 2016 and the deadline for developers to submit their proposals is April 8, 2016.
