Disclosure Forms Deep Dive
Since the inception of the Illinois Shines and Illinois Solar for All programs, the Illinois Power Agency has required that standard Disclosure Forms be provided to customers for their signature, with those customer-executed forms then submitted to the appropriate Program Administrator. The customer must sign their completed Disclosure Form prior to signing a Distributed Generation contract, or in the case of a Community Solar project, a subscription agreement.
The Deep Dive into your Disclosure Form helps you understand the details of your Disclosure Form by walking you through the document, section by section.
Once you make your selections, you will see a sample Disclosure Form on the left. Click on the red dots to see information about that section. Click the red dot again to close that window and open another window.
A glossary of terms is provided at the end of each Deep Dive.
Portal Inputs - Current Average Retail Rate, and Price to Compare
This document provides input rates that are utilized within the Program portal for calculations. For Distributed Generation, these include the Current Average Retail Rate (for ComEd/Ameren/MidAmerican) used to calculate the Savings Estimates for DG Disclosure Forms, and for rural electric co-ops or municipal utilities, an average statewide retail rate is used and updated annually. For Community Solar, a Price to Compare is provided for the utilities. Click here to access the current Portal Input Rates document.
