Non-Wires Alternatives

Learn about DER procurements to meet utility system needs
Updated December 2019


Non-Wire Alternatives projects allow utilities to defer or avoid conventional infrastructure investments by procuring distributed energy resources (DER) that lower costs and emissions while maintaining or improving system reliability. We invite you to browse the current and upcoming Non-Wire Alternatives procurements of each utility. Responses to open Non-Wire Alternatives procurements should be made directly to the offering utility. Do not submit RFP/RFI responses to REV Connect.
