The Connecticut Clean Energy Fund anticipates that the Proposal Due Date for the Project 100 Round II Request for Proposal is likely to be within the first two weeks of December, 2006. This timeframe enables parties to submit, and the Department of Public Utility Control to review and approve, Round II-related filings pursuant to Orders No. 1 and 2 in the Department’s Final Decision in Docket No. 03-07-17RE03 dated September 27, 2006. A copy of that Final Decision is provided for your convenience below. The anticipated Proposal Due Date time frame assumes the timely submittal and approval of those filings.

When the DPUC approves all relevant filings, CCEF will promptly post on its website at 1) the revised final Round II Request for Proposal; 2) the revised final Standard Electricity Purchase Agreement; and, 3) the firm Proposal Due Date.
