Request For Proposals

The Wyoming Energy Authority is issuing a request for proposals (RFP) to solicit project proposals from eligible entities to be sub-awarded under the IIJA Section 40101(d) Preventing Outages and Enhancing the Resilience of the Electric Grid grant program.


The United States Department of Energy (DOE) has new programs available to them from the passage of the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (IIJA). Section 40101(d) of the IIJA establishes the Preventing Outages and Enhancing the Resilience of the Electric Grid grant program. The Wyoming Energy Authority received formula funding under this grant on behalf of the State of Wyoming, which will be sub-awarded to eligible entities for grid resiliency and grid reliability projects. 

The grant will be used to replace deteriorating infrastructure, improve planning, and harden the electric transmission system. The grant funding will also be used to mitigate costs to rural customers and improve public safety through grid improvements. The WEA received formula funding of over $8 million and requires a cost-match for project funding. 

This RFP closes March 29, 2024.
