W&S-79: What are the fees for participation in the Wind and Solar RFP?

Each participant in the Wind and Solar RFP will be required to pay a non-refundable Bid Participation Fee of $500 (unless such participant has already paid a Bid Participation Fee in 2017 pursuant to its participation in the Block Energy RFP or the Distributed Generation RFP). A participant that presents several projects is only required to pay a single Bid Participation Fee.

Additionally, there is a Supplier Fee, which is levied only on those participants that have bids approved by the Illinois Commerce Commission. An estimate of the Supplier Fees, which will be in $/REC and will be applied to the annual quantity of RECs for a winning project, will be provided during the webcast planned for July 19.
