Application for Addition to Qualified Bidders List (Prospective Construction Contractors)
To assist Y-WEA personnel in evaluating prospective construction contractors for addition to Y-WEA’s Qualified Bidders Lists for distribution line, transmission line, or substation construction projects, all interested bidders are required to complete the Prospective Bidder Qualification Form linked below and return it, together with the additional required information, to Y-WEA. Y-WEA will periodically review applications that are received, generally shortly before a construction project is released for bids, and determine whether or not each prospective contractor will be added to the appropriate Qualified Bidders List(s). Y-WEA will not add any contractor to a Qualified Bidder’s List once the list for a particular project has been finalized (usually within a day or two prior to the release of bidding materials to approved bidders), but any applications received after that time will be considered for future projects. In the interest of full disclosure, Y-WEA almost never contracts for distribution line work except in very highly specialized cases or emergency situations with large amounts of damaged distribution lines. When transmission line or substation projects arise, however, Y-WEA usually does contract this work.
Renewable Generation Interconnections
The Colorado Public Utilities Commission allows consumers in the state of Colorado to interconnect small renewable generation systems to their services within their set of rules. These rules apply to Y-W Electric Association’s consumers in Colorado. In many cases, residential consumers may connect and net meter renewable distributed generation systems up to 10 kW in capacity to their accounts, and commercial consumers may connect and net meter renewable distributed generation systems up to 25 kW in capacity to their accounts. These generation limits may be reduced by Y-WEA’s system capacity in areas of our distribution system.
