With respect to the Supplier Fee, the IPA’s 2017 Procurement Plan (https://www.illinois.gov/sites/ipa/Documents/2017ProcurementPlan/ICCFiling/2017%20IPA%20Procurement%20Plan%20for%20ICC%20Filing%20%28Final%209-27-16%29.pdf)
states that “an estimated Supplier Fee per REC will be announced prior to the opening of bidder registration, and the final Supplier Fee per REC will be announced after bidder registration is completed but prior to the bid due date.” Typically the estimated Supplier Fee is provided during the webcast held prior to the opening of bidder registration, scheduled for March 27. It is not feasible to provide an estimate of the Supplier Fee on February 28. In response to your request, we will endeavour to provide an estimated Supplier Fee by March 3. This estimate will be such that the actual Supplier Fee that will be announced once registration is completed but prior to the bid due date will be NO HIGHER than the previously announced estimated Supplier Fee.
With respect to the capacity factors, the final capacity factors were expected to be made available when the final RFP Rules are released, which is scheduled for March 27, 2017. It is not feasible to provide final capacity factors by February 28. Please take note of the capacity factors that were used in prior DG procurement events, available on p.6 of this document:
In response to your request, we will endeavour to provide any updates to these capacity factors by March 3 as well. Such updates will provide to bidders the final capacity factors and these capacity factors will not be subject to further change when the final RFP Rules are released.
