On December 14, 2020 an application was submitted that exceeded the available capacity in Group B Small DG Block 3. This application and all other applications for this Group/category submitted in a paid batch on or prior to 11:59 PM Central Prevailing Time on that date were allocated to Block 3 up to a cap of 2 MW of additional Block 3 capacity, with the application that crossed the 2 MW cap allocated to Block 3 in its entirety. The additional capacity allocated to Block 3 is 1.547 MW.
All subsequently submitted applications for Group B Small DG will be placed on a waitlist as the Block is now closed. Please refer to the announcement of the Block closing protocol on illinoisshines.com for more details on waitlist management.
At this time there is not a schedule for the opening of a future block of capacity for Group B Small DG. As outlined extensively in Chapter 3 of the IPA’s Revised Long-Term Renewable Resources Procurement Plan, obtaining RPS funding necessary for opening additional blocks in 2021 would require passing new legislation.
