In Fall 2019, the Illinois Power Agency, through its Procurement Administrator NERA Economic Consulting, conducted a competitive procurement event seeking to procure 1,000,000 RECs delivered annually through 15-year delivery contracts from new utility-scale wind projects. No projects were selected under this procurement event.
The IPA is now seeking feedback on any barriers that may have limited successful participation in prior utility-scale wind procurements, or that may limit successful participation in the Next Wind Procurement. The IPA also seeks stakeholder feedback on factors that may impact the timing of the Next Wind Procurement. Click here for a document listing specific questions that the Agency has posed.
Comments are welcome from both bidders in prior utility-scale wind procurements as well as other interested parties.
Responses are due by March 30, 2020 and should be sent to Illinois-RFP@nera.com.
