The Illinois Power Agency has released the following two requests for stakeholder feedback.
- Project Selection for Future Community Solar Blocks
- REC Pricing for Future Adjustable Block Program Blocks
Each document provides background on the request and poses a number of questions for stakeholder input. Responses are requested by December 21, 2020 and instructions for how to respond is included in each document. After these responses are received, the Agency expects to hold virtual workshops to discuss written feedback and seek additional feedback prior to finalization of any new selection criteria or prices.
*Please note that these feedback processes do not mean that the Agency is planning to open new blocks of the Adjustable Block Program; 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.
