As described in Section 5.4.3 of the Long-Term Plan, under new subparagraph (P) of Section 1-75(c)(1), the Agency will optimize the procurement of RECs from utility-scale projects located in communities eligible to receive Energy Transition Community Grants. Section 5.4.3 describes a bid evaluation procedure to prioritize such projects. This grant program will be administered by the Illinois Department of Commerce and Economic Opportunity. Under expected timelines at the time of development of the RFP Process and Rules and Indexed REC Contract for the Fall 2022 Indexed REC RFP, this grant program was not expected to be implemented until much later in 2022. Thus, this prioritization was not implemented in this Fall 2022 Indexed REC RFP. This was confirmed in Stakeholder Workshop held in August 2022.
