Program Year Webinars

On September 15, 2021 Governor Pritzker signed the Climate and Equitable Jobs Act (Public Act 102-0662). This Act included significant changes to the Adjustable Block/Illinois Shines program. The IPA and the Program Administrator provided updates on these programmatic changes and the process of reopening the Program.

As outlined in CEJA, Illinois Shines applications up to and including 25 kW are now considered to be in the Small DG category. As a result, waitlisted applications larger than 10 kW and less than or equal to 25kW on the Large DG waitlist (approximately 11 MW in aggregate) have been reclassified as Small DG prior to the 12/14/21 portal reopening.
