Brownfield Site Photovoltaic Procurement
On December 4, 2018, the Procurement Administrator released information regarding the results of the Brownfield and Utility-Scale Solar RFP, including the fact that no renewable energy credits (“RECs”) had been successfully procured from brownfield site photovoltaic projects. On March 28, 2019, the IPA filed a petition requesting that the Illinois Commerce Commission (“Commission”) clarify that the IPA had the authority to run a second procurement event to procure RECs from new brownfield site photovoltaic projects. The Commission issued its Order on April 26, 2019 confirming that the IPA had the authority to run a procurement event for 80,000 RECs delivered annually from new brownfield site photovoltaic projects. This section of the website provides information regarding this procurement event.
