On May 16, 2022, the Illinois Power Agency (IPA) announced that subject to available capacity, currently open Small and Large Distributed Generation blocks will remain open until July 1, 2022. The Adjustable Block Program will then pause its acceptance of applications.
The Program Administrators will start accepting Part I applications on September 1st, and Part II applications by November 1st. Please note that the Part II application may reopen sooner than November if feasible.
You can find more information on the IPA’s decision here. Most notably, the Long-Term Plan is expected to be approved on July 14, 2022, and all applications submitted to the Program on or after September 1, 2022 will be subject to new or revised Program requirements outlined in the Long-Term Plan.
As a result of the Adjustable Block Program closing its application, SRECTrade has made the decision to temporarily shut down its own application on June 15, 2022, at 5 PM CT. SRECTrade cannot guarantee submission of applications to Part I or Part II prior to the Program’s July 1st close.
The closure of SRECTrade’s application will allow for SRECTrade to properly incorporate any required changes that arise with the passage of the Long-Term Plan. SRECTrade will announce the reopening date of its application once the changes have been confirmed and updates have been implemented.
SRECTrade believes that the closure of its application is the most efficient path to application submissions. The temporary closure will mitigate the need to retroactively collect information for applications that is not currently required but will become required after the passage of the Long-Term Plan.Tweet
