IFP-30: Are the procurement events under the New Solar RFP restricted to larger utility-scale Projects?

The procurement events held under the New Solar RFP are for the annual delivery of renewable energy credits from new Solar Projects (utility-scale projects or brownfield site photovoltaic projects). As defined in Public Act 099-0906, a utility-scale solar project means an electric generating facility that generates electricity using photovoltaic cells and that has a nameplate capacity greater than 2,000 kW (AC rating). A brownfield site photovoltaic project means photovoltaics that are interconnected to an electric utility, a municipal utility, a public utility or an electric cooperative as defined by the Act. There is no size requirement related to brownfield site photovoltaic projects.
