IPA Draft Procurement Plan

The Illinois Power Authority issued a draft electricity procurement plan for June 2018 through May 2023. The Plan addressed the procurement of electricity for "eligible retail customers" of Ameren, ComEd and MidAmerican. The Plan follows the previously utilized approach of two block energy procurement events, in the spring and the fall. Load hedging will involve procurement of on and off-peak blocks of forward energy in a three-year laddered approach. Capacity procurement for ComEd will be through the PJM Reliability Pricing Model and Capacity Performance processes. Commencing with the 2019-2020 delivery year, capacity for Ameren will be procured through the MISO PRA. MidAmerican's forecast capacity deficit will be met through the MISO PRA. With regard to renewable energy resources, the IPA is developing a separate long-term renewable resources procurement plan expected to be released in September 2017. Comments on the IPA's Draft Procurement Plan are due September 14, 2017. The full texts of the Memo and Hearing Notice and the 2018 Draft Electricity Procurement Plan are available on the NEM Website.

Ruling in Dominion CRG Proceeding

The Hearing Examiner issued a ruling in the Dominion CRG proceeding. Dominion filed an application with the Commission to offer six renewable energy tariffs, the CRG Rate Schedules, for non-residential customers with demand of 1,000 kW or greater. A Motion to Dismiss or Stay the Proceeding was filed arguing amongst other things that the Dominion filing failed to include sufficient information upon which the Commission could determine the rates to be just and reasonable or in the public interest. The Hearing Examiner decided to take the request for dismissal "under advisement." While the motion "raises a number of valid issues pertaining to the statutory requirements for the approval [of] tariffs, such as the CRG Rate Schedules," the Hearing Examiner concluded "that the Commission should be afforded the opportunity to consider such issues in the context of a fully developed record." The full text of the Hearing Examiner's Ruling is available on the NEM Website.
