Release of Revised ABP Distributed Generation Marketing Guidelines

The revised Adjustable Block Program Distributed Generation Marketing Guidelines are now finalized and posted here along with a redline document that compares the changes between the original version published on January 31, 2019 and this revised version.*

These revised guidelines apply to all distributed generation sales and marketing activity moving forward. Approved Vendors and those operating on their behalf are expected to be familiar with the updates made in this new version of the marketing guidelines and adhere to all requirements outlined in the document. Consistent with the ICC’s Order in Docket No. 19-0995, there will be a grace period of 45 calendar days from September 16, 2020 before any disciplinary action is taken for violations of new requirements found in these guidelines.

The revision of the ABP Community Solar Marketing Guidelines is still in process and is anticipated to be finalized in September 2020.  Please note that there will be significant differences between the Distributed Generation and the Community Solar Marketing Guidelines; Approved Vendors thus should not use the revised Distributed Generation Marketing Guidelines as indicative of pending changes for community solar.

Please reach out to the Program Administrator at admin@illinoisabp.com or (877) 783-1820 with any questions.

*Please note that the changes reflected in the redline comparison may seem far more extensive than the actual changes as there was a significant amount of reorganization of text between this version of the document and the January 31, 2019 version.
