A procurement for 80,000 RECs delivered annually from new brownfield site photovoltaic projects was held in Fall 2018 under the Brownfield and Utility-Scale Solar RFP. No successful bids were received from brownfield site photovoltaic projects, and thus no projects were selected under this RFP. Information regarding this previous RFP is available on the procurement website here.
On March 28, 2019, the IPA filed a petition requesting that the Illinois Commerce Commission (“Commission”) clarify that the IPA had the authority to run a second procurement event to procure RECs from new brownfield site photovoltaic projects. The Commission issued its Order on April 26, 2019 confirming that the IPA had the authority to run a procurement event for 80,000 RECs delivered annually from new brownfield site photovoltaic projects. This procurement event will be held in Summer 2019.
Information pertaining to the Summer 2019 Brownfield procurement event is posted to the dedicated Brownfield page of the procurement website. The schedule for this procurement event is posted to the Calendar page.
