Workshop Details

Distributed Generation

In Spring 2012, the IPA held a series of workshops on Distributed Generation (“DG”) and included in its 2013 Procurement Plan an outline of a potential DG procurement.2 Due to statutory funding constraints, no DG procurement was held in 2013.

On May 30th, the Illinois General Assembly passed House Bill 24273 directing a one-time supplemental procurement of solar resources by the IPA using up to $30 million of funds from the Renewable Energy Resources Fund. These resources include new and existing DG.

HB2427 calls for a public workshop during the 90 plan development process. That workshop will be scheduled after HB2427 is signed into law by the Governor, should he do so, and will cover all aspects of the supplemental procurement. The June 12 workshop is not the workshop called for in HB 2427 and will focus exclusively on DG.

1. Review 2012 workshop and 2013 IPA Procurement Plan DG recommendations 

2. Discuss recent DG developments in other states applicable to Illinois
3. Overview and discussion of DG provisions of HB2427

Parties interested in making brief opening presentations on any or all of these topics may make that request (by June 9th) by contacting Mario Bohorquez at Mario.bohorquez@illinois.gov.
