Illinois RPS fix pushed back another year
A potential law to fund stalled renewable power projects in Illinois will not be passed this year. Environmentalists have been advocating for the initiative for several years. The reason the law failed was because Exelon Corp., the most influential energy provider in Illinois, did not support the measure.
There is a chance the law could be passed next year for solar projects. The smaller bill would allow Illinois to start some construction on solar installations through a bidding process.
