Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Illinois Power Agency Act. Requires the Planning and Procurement Bureau to include in procurement plans and competitive procurement processes the procurement of low carbon energy credits (LCE credits) for all of the utilities' retail customers. Sets forth a low carbon portfolio standard. Provides that the procurement plans shall include cost-effective low carbon energy credits from low carbon energy resources in an amount equal to 70% of each electric utility's annual retail sales of electricity to retail customers in the State during the planning year immediately prior to the development of the procurement plan. Specifies that a renewable energy credit, carbon emission credit, or LCE credit can only be used once to comply with a single portfolio standard and cannot be used to satisfy the requirements of more than one portfolio standard. Amends the Public Utilities Act. Allows the electric utility to recover through tariffed charges all of the costs associated with the purchase of low carbon energy credits from low carbon energy resources. Requires electric utilities to procure low carbon energy credits from low carbon energy resources for all retail customers in its service area in accordance with provisions concerning the low carbon energy portfolio. Requires electric utilities and alternative retail electric suppliers to provide to its customers on a quarterly basis a pie-chart that graphically depicts the quantity of low carbon energy credits from low carbon energy resources procured as a percentage of the actual load of retail customers within its service area. Effective immediately.
