"Dispatchable generation refers to sources of electricity that can be dispatched at the request of power grid operators, that is, turned on (or off) at on demand.
This should be contrasted with certain types of base load generation capacity, such as nuclear power, which may have limited capability to maneuver or adjust their power output, or intermittent power sources such as wind power which cannot be controlled by operators." --Wikipedia
"This solicitation seeks proposals for power purchase agreements for dispatchable generation resources capable of serving SPS needs on or after January 1, 2012 but no later than May 1, 2013." --Xcel Energy
