Indexed REC-6: How can a project located in a state adjacent to Illinois qualify to participate in this Summer 2023 Indexed REC procurement?

A Project that is located in a state adjacent to Illinois may qualify to participate in the Indexed REC RFP if it meets the public interest criteria specified in Section 1-75(c)(1)(I) of the IPA Act by submitting data about the Project to the IPA and obtaining pre-approval from the IPA that the Project is eligible for Illinois RPS compliance.

The evaluation spreadsheet to determine whether a Project located in a state adjacent to Illinois (Wisconsin, Iowa, Missouri, Kentucky, Indiana, and Michigan) meets the public interest criteria in the Act and has been pre-approved to be eligible for Illinois RPS compliance must be submitted to the Illinois Power Agency by email to ipa.contactus@illinois.gov . The evaluation spreadsheet dated August 15, 2022 and available on the IPA’s website, under the header “Adjacent State Facility Eligibility” here, accounts for updates described in Chapter 4 of the 2022 Long-Term Renewable Resources Procurement Plan. This updated spreadsheet dated August 15, 2022 must be used for the Summer 2023 Indexed REC RFP.
