Community Renewable Generation Program Forward Procurement

Public Act 99-0906 was signed into law on December 7, 2016 and became effective June 1, 2017.  On December 4, 2017, the IPA submitted its Long-Term Renewable Resources Procurement Plan (“Long-Term Plan”) to the Illinois Commerce Commission (“ICC”) pursuant to the provisions of Sections 1-56(b) and 1-75(c) of the Illinois Power Agency Act and Section 16-111.5 of the Public Utilities Act.  As approved by the ICC, the Long-Term Plan provides for a procurement of RECs delivered annually from community renewable generation projects that are not photovoltaic projects under fifteen-year contracts.  (Community renewable generation projects that are photovoltaic projects must participate in the Adjustable Block Program).  The requirements to participate will mirror the requirements of the Adjustable Block Program; however, rather than applying for a set price per REC as in the Adjustable Block Program, projects in the Community Renewable Generation Program will be selected primarily on the basis of price.  Please refer to Section 5.8.4 of the Long-Term Plan for additional information.

Preliminary Proposal Requirements, Draft Key Contract Terms, and an indicative schedule are posted to the Draft Documents Page.
