No, there is no carve-out for brownfield site photovoltaic projects. There is a Target for each category (i.e., a Target for wind and a Target for solar) but there is no separate Target or maximum for brownfield site photovoltaic projects. All RECs from utility-scale solar projects and from brownfield site photovoltaic projects will be evaluated together.
The evaluation first eliminates the bids that fail to meet or beat the benchmarks. Second, bids are ranked in order of price per REC until the target for the category in this procurement event is met (on an annual basis) or until all bids have been ranked. The lowest priced projects thus selected are identified by the Procurement Administrator to the Commission as winning projects.
