Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Illinois Power Agency Act. Requires the Illinois Power Agency to collect data for all applicants for solar contracts under any Agency-administered program as well as each entity that has currently been awarded solar contracts under any Agency-administered program. Lists information the Agency is required to collect from applicants and program participants. Requires the Agency to immediately deny any application for solar contracts under any Agency-administered program if the Agency finds that the project would include any products mined, produced, or manufactured, in whole or in part, that the United States Department of Labor's Bureau of International Labor Affairs has listed in its list of goods produced by child labor or forced labor. Requires the Agency to revoke any existing solar contracts that it has already awarded to any participant that used products listed on the list of goods produced by child labor or forced labor. Requires the Agency to publish, at least annually, the information on the data and sources of solar panels used under any Agency-administered program on an aggregate basis. Provides that nothing shall be interpreted to limit the authority of the Agency, or other agency or department of the State, to require or collect similar information from applicants of other State programs.
