Wind and Solar RFP – INVITATION to Comment on the Draft Standard Contract Form

A draft standard contract form, the “draft REC Contract”, has been posted to the procurement website.  This draft REC contract is proposed to be the standard contract form between each winning supplier in the Wind and Solar RFP and Ameren Illinois Company (“AIC”), Commonwealth Edison Company (“ComEd”), or MidAmerican Energy Company (“MEC”).  The Wind and Solar RFP will seek to procure one million RECs annually from new utility-scale wind projects and will seek to procure a portion of one million RECs annually from new utility-scale solar projects and brownfield site photovoltaic projects.

The Procurement Administrator invites interested parties to comment on the draft standard contract form.  The comment process is explained in the Invitation to Comment posted here.  The process can be summarized as follows:
