Contract Requirements

Section 9.4 of the Long-Term Renewable Resources Procurement Plan (“the Plan”) states that the IPA and its Program Administrators developed “program requirements, including marketing requirements, standard disclosure forms, contract requirements, and program brochures.” Under Section 1-75(c)(1)(M)(ii), the Agency is required “to establish program requirements and minimum contract terms ‘to ensure projects are properly installed and produce their expected amounts of energy.’ Consistent with the 2022-Long Term Plan, the IPA has updated the Contract Requirements, and AVs/Designees must be in full compliance with the new requirements in these documents by August 28, 2022:

Prevailing Wage Hub

Prevailing wage is a minimum compensation level set by the Illinois Department of Labor (IDOL) by county for construction activities related to public works. Section 1-75(c)(1)(Q) of the IPA Act (20 ILCS 3855) as modified by Climate and Equitable Jobs Act (Public Act 102-0662) now requires that individuals engaged in the construction of applicable projects submitted to the Adjustable Block Program (“ABP”) are paid the relevant prevailing wage. Additionally, Illinois Public Act 102-0673 (effective as of November 30, 2021) clarifies that such projects are “public works” subject to the Prevailing Wage Act—which includes notice requirements and related provisions as well. The Prevailing Wage Act defines ‘construction’ to include maintenance, repair, assembly, or disassembly work performed on equipment.
