As a reminder, the Program Administrator released scores on Monday, June 26, 2023, which will be used to determine which projects will be selected for a REC contract once random selection takes place. The scores and a full announcement regarding the scoring process were posted on the Program website on the Solar Project Categories page under the CDCS sub-section. AVs were provided two weeks, until July 10, 2023, to appeal scores; the Agency received three appeals. The IPA determination on submitted appeals was finalized on July 19, 2023; there were no changes to scores related to appeals and the scoring spreadsheet on the Program website reflects final scores.
With post-appeal determination scores now finalized, the Agency will utilize a random selection process to break ties between projects that received the same scores. The Agency will hold the random selection re-ordering event tomorrow, July 26, 2023 at 9:00 a.m. CPT. Register link: https://energy-solution.zoom.us/webinar/register/WN_CVTtXfv_SDWWDkyJuuYFzw
After project selection, only projects that have a minimum score of 10 points will be placed on a waitlist for the 2023-2024 delivery year.
The Agency anticipates the next steps in this process with the following updated schedule:
- July 26, 2023 – Random selection event for projects with tied scores
- July 28, 2023 – Final order of selected projects and waitlisted projects published
