The Illinois Solar for All Approved Vendor portal will open at 9:00 AM on May 15, 2019.
Through this portal, Approved Vendors will be able to generate disclosure forms for program participants (as applicable), enter Part I applications for projects, and submit batches of Part I applications.
The initial project submittal window for the Low-Income Community Solar sub-program will be 30 days. The initial project submittal window for the Low-Income Distributed Generation and the Non-Profits and Public Facilities sub-programs will be 45 days. Part I applications must be both entered and submitted in a batch during these windows to be eligible for consideration if the Project Selection process is required. If a Part I application is entered, but the project is not subsequently included in a timely submitted batch, it will not be eligible for the Project Selection process.
The longer window for the Low-Income Distributed Generation and Non-Profits and Public Facilities sub-programs is to recognize the additional time needed for Approved Vendors to submit projects due to the requirements for those programs related to participant review of disclosures and, for Distributed Generation, the ability to rescind agreement to the contract for seven business days after signing.
The initial project application timeline for the 2018-2019 program year is as follows:
Batches of projects submitted after the initial submission windows will be considered on a first come, first served basis if there is funding available for the applicable sub-program. Otherwise, they will be put on a waiting list for consideration in the subsequent program year.
