The Illinois Adjustable Block Program has published a detailed timeline of how an Application progresses through the program.

Below is a table that shows the Program Administrator’s progress in reviewing batches of applications submitted to the Illinois ABP.

Notes:

  • Group A Small DG is in Block 3.
  • Group A Small DG Block 3 capacity shown assumes that all soft close batch payments are received by the deadline of Dec 10, 2020, e.g. it subtracts the capacity received during the soft close from the original Block 3 capacity. Block 3 capacity will be updated if any soft close batches fail to make their batch payments within 10 business days of the end of the soft close period.
  • Group B Small DG is in Block 3.
  • Group B Small DG Block 3 capacity shown assumes that all soft close batch payments are received by the deadline of Dec 3, 2020, e.g. it subtracts the capacity received during the soft close from the original Block 3 capacity. Block 3 capacity will be updated if any soft close batches fail to make their batch payments within 10 business days of the end of the soft close period.
  • Group A is  for projects located in the service territories of Ameren Illinois, MidAmerican, Mt. Carmel Public Utility, and rural electric cooperatives and municipal utilities located in MISO. Group B is for projects located in the service territories of ComEd, and rural electric cooperatives and municipal utilities located in PJM.
  • Small DG (Distributed Generation) is up to 10 kilowatts, and Large DG is above 10 up to 2,000 kilowatts.
  • All categories are additive and represent a stage in the projects movement through the process. No project is represented in more than one category. For example the ICC Approved section does not include any projects except those approved by the ICC.
