The Illinois Power Agency (IPA) and the Illinois Commerce Commission (ICC) are in the process of implementing the Long-Term Renewable Resources Procurement Plan (LTRRPP). Under the LTRRPP, the state will hold procurements for utility-scale wind and solar and will secure distributed generation and community solar REC contracts through the LTRRPP Adjustable Block Program (ABP).
The ABP features capacity-based blocks set at predetermined prices for 15-year REC contracts. The program is open to new distributed generation solar and community solar projects meeting the ABP’s eligibility parameters. “New” means “energized on or after June 1, 2017” as defined in the Plan as filed with the ICC for approval. There are two types of “new” projects that are eligible for the ABP: (1) Photovoltaic distributed renewable energy generation devices (i.e., DG solar); and (2) Photovoltaic community renewable generation projects (i.e., community solar). DG solar must be interconnected, behind-the-meter, and less than or equal to 2,000 kW AC.
The ICC is expected to issue its Order on the Implementation of the LTRRPP on or before April 3, 2018. For more information and updates regarding the state’s past and future procurements and the upcoming ABP, please visit our blog or the IPA website.
