SPV-176: When the SPV RFP is asking information about the interconnecting utility, should we provide the name of the distribution company or the name of the electricity supplier? Could we be excluded from participating based on the information we provide for this item?

In the information submitted in your Proposal, you are asked about the “interconnecting utility” for the system. The interconnecting utility refers to the entity responsible for the interconnection at the distribution level.  It does not refer to the entity from which the customer is purchasing electricity, which may be an alternative retail electric supplier and thus may not be the same at the entity responsible for interconnection.

The SPV RFP does not exclude systems on the basis of the identity of the company that ensures that the system is interconnected at the distribution level in Illinois.
