LIP-6: The Bid Evaluation Section of the webcast from July 31, 2019 states that “the Budget cannot be entirely spent on Projects presented by utilities”. Can you provide additional information on the bid evaluation procedure?

As stated in Section 1-56(b)(2)(D) of the Illinois Power Agency Act, funding available for this subprogram may not be solely distributed to a utility. This means that at least one (1) project that is not presented by the utility must be selected in order for the entire budget for the procurement of RECs to be used. For example, if there is funding sufficient for only 1 project and the project presented by the utility is the lowest-priced project, the evaluation will feature selection of the non-utility project, which will be taken out of price order.
