Illinois Plans to Procure Small Scale Renewable Energy

21 Feb 2012 9:56 AM | Michelle Hickey
Public Act 097-0616_Senate Bill 1652 (page 9 line 19) stipulates that at least .5% of the Illinois Renewable Portfolio Standard (RPS) in 2013 shall come from distributed renewable energy generation, .75% by 2014, and 1% by 2015.  Half of the distributed generation requirement shall come from systems 25 kW or smaller.  Table illustrating the Illinois RPS and the percentage to come from Distributed Generation.

The Illinois Power Authority (IPA) is hosting workshops to assist with the development of a distributed generation renewable resource procurement plan for 2013. 

Please take the time to attend the workshop in person to show that there is a solar and small wind community in Illinois that will be greatly impacted by the results of this workshop process.  It is important to voice your comments for the record.
