Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Electric Service Customer Choice and Rate Relief Law of 1997 in the Public Utilities Act. Provides that the findings set forth in the provisions used by the Illinois Commerce Commission in determining whether to issue a certification for alternative retail electric supplier does not apply to applicants whose principal business and source of revenue are not the generation, transmission, distribution, or sale of electricity.

House Committee Amendment No. 1
Deletes everything after the enacting clause. Amends the Electric Service Customer Choice and Rate Relief Law of 1997 in the Public Utilities Act. Removes the requirement that the Illinois Commerce Commission, when determining whether to issue a certificate of authority, find that the applicant, its corporate affiliates or the applicant's principal source of electricity owns or controls facilities, for public use, for the transmission or distribution of electricity to end-users within a defined geographic area to which electric power and energy can be physically and economically delivered by the electric utility or utilities in whose service area or areas the proposed service will be offered, the applicant, its corporate affiliates or principal source of electricity, as the case may be, provides delivery services to the electric utility or utilities in whose service area or areas the proposed service will be offered that are reasonably comparable to those offered by the electric utility, and provided further, that the applicant agrees to certify annually to the Commission that it is continuing to provide such delivery services and that it has not knowingly assisted any person or entity to avoid the requirements of the certification process.
