On March 3, 2021, the Illinois Power Agency (“Agency”) filed a petition with the Illinois Commerce Commission (”ICC”) for the reopening of Docket No. 19-0995, the proceeding related to the Revised Long-Term Renewable Resources Procurement Plan. This filing demonstrated that due to the widespread project energization delays that resulted from the COVID-19 pandemic, the available renewable portfolio standard (“RPS”) budget for the 2021-2022 delivery year (“DY2021-2022”) could face a funding shortfall. The filing was approved by the Illinois Commerce Commission with modifications on May 27, 2021.
On July 30, 2021, the Agency posted a draft of the proposed Payment Deferral Contract Amendment (the “July 2021 Draft Payment Deferral Contract Amendment”). The Agency is seeking feedback on the draft contract amendments with comments due by August 12, 2021. The draft contract amendments are provided as Appendix A and Appendix B to the Request for Stakeholder Comments document.
