The Illinois Power Agency is pleased to announce that it will be conducting workshops on implementation of revisions to the Illinois Renewable Portfolio Standard (“RPS”) pursuant to Public Act 99-0906 (the Future Energy Jobs Act), which take effect June 1, 2017.
Morning: Community Solar This workshop will focus on community solar projects. The agenda will include potential approaches for (1) application procedures; (2) program terms and conditions; (3) consumer protections; and other issues to be determined.
Afternoon: Illinois Solar for All Programs This workshop will focus on potential approaches for how the IPA will implement revisions to Section 1-56 of the Illinois Power Agency Act, creating the Illinois Solar for All program, which provides incentives for low-income consumers and communities through four programs: Low income Distributed Generation Incentive; Low-income Community Solar Project Initiative; Initiatives for Non-profits and Public Facilities; and Low-Income Community Solar Pilot Projects. The workshop will also address potential approaches for defining the term “environmental justice community,” best practices for determination of low-income eligibility, opportunities for grassroots education on the Illinois Solar for All programs, and coordination with job training programs.
These workshops will provide an opportunity for stakeholder feedback. In addition, in the weeks following the conclusion of these workshops, the Illinois Power Agency anticipates issuing specific questions that arise from the workshops to stakeholders, providing both workshops attendees and non-attendees with an opportunity to provide more focused, well-researched, and detailed feedback to the Agency on specific key issues.
