Program Year 2023-24 Community-Driven Community Solar (CDCS) Scores Released

< Back to Updates

Update from 10/06/2023

The Program Administrator released scores on Monday, October 30, 2023. These scores will be used to determine which projects will be selected for a REC contract once random selection (if needed) takes place. The scores and full announcement regarding the scoring process were posted on the Program website on the CDCS Program Category Hub.

AVs have two weeks from October 30, 2023 to appeal project scoring. Submitted appeals must be received by the program Administrator at [email protected], by 11:59 p.m. CPT November 13, 2023. As the determination of appeals may influence a project’s final score, and thus possibly the final selection of projects, all appeals must be reviewed by the Agency within a distinct timeframe. The Agency intends to have all submitted appeals determined by November 29, 2023 subject to the quantity and substance of appeals submitted.

The Agency anticipates the next steps in this process with the following schedule in effect, pending prompt responses from AVs:

  • October 30, 2023 – Release scores, begin two-week appeal period
  • November 13, 2023 – Deadline for AVs to submit appeals to Program Administrator
  • November 29, 2023 – Appeal determinations released to AVs and any changes will be published to the website
  • December 6, 2023 – Random selection event for projects with tied scores (if necessary)
  • December 6, 2023 – Final scores published
