The 2018/2019 project submission window for the Illinois Solar for All Low-Income Distributed Generation and Non-Profit/Public Facilities sub-programs closed on Friday, June 28, 2019. Projects submitted in the Non-Profit/Public Facilities sub-program total over 3,300 kW in system capacity and $8 million in incentive value. The Low-Income Distributed Generation sub-program had 2,000 kW in system capacity and $3.2 million in incentive value submitted. The Low-Income Community Solar sub-program, which closed for 2018/2019 project applications on Thursday, June 13, 2019, received submissions totaling over 59,000 kW and $176 million in incentive value.
Based on the total incentive value for the projects submitted during the 2018/2019 project submission windows, the Project Selection process will be necessary for the Low-Income Community Solar and the Non-Profit/Public Facility sub-programs, but not for the Low-Income Distributed Generation sub-program. The Program Administrator is now reviewing the submissions and working with Approved Vendors to clarify and correct information where necessary. During these review and cure periods, projects may be withdrawn or found ineligible. If, based on status changes, the total Renewable Energy Credit (REC) contract amounts in a sub-program fall below the 2018/2019 sub-program budget, a project selection process may no longer be necessary. In that case, all remaining eligible projects would be funded, and any remaining sub-program budget would be rolled into the sub-program budget for the next program year, 2019/2020. The data and status of projects within the review process will be updated regularly. The data and status of projects within the review process will be updated regularly.
