Illinois legislation promises a renewable energy revolution. But who would pay?

Isn’t that the age-old question? Who will pay? Perhaps it’s the actual cost, the time or the impact to our environment that will be paying the price.

Illinois has two pieces of legislation that could alter the energy, environment, and economics of the state.

These two bills differ in supporting how to obtain more renewables as both want to increase the current goal to 100% renewable by 2030.

  • The Clean Energy Jobs Act (CEJA) largely builds on the 2017 Future Energy Jobs Act that caused a solar installation rush. The CEJA would expand incentives for training and jobs while constructing more solar. They are supported by environmental and community groups.
  • The Path to 100 is supported by the renewables industry and would accelerate the goal of 100% clean energy in Illinois.

How it gets paid: essentially by changing how the capacity market procures the energy Illinois needs.

Both bills would encourage the move toward lower priced solar while minimizing the disruption to oil, gas, and nuclear.

The debate is in the right place. Solar energy is the cheaper cost and causes less impact to the environment. Creating incentives now to capitalize growth and allow transition into this less costly energy source will setup Illinois for the future.

South Carolina House Passes Resolution To Require Study Of “Full” Retail Electric Choice

Energy deregulation allows consumers to select their energy supplier while retaining the monopoly utility delivery system.

South Carolina would be joining many states offering customer choice.

We applaud South Carolina for believing in markets over monopoly.

Utilities vs. grid edge upstarts: Turf battles in an increasingly DER-centric world

You’ve heard of the Internet of Things… devices using a network to transfer data such as door bells, Alexa, light switches, TVs, thermostats, etc.

What about solar panels or car chargers? Think about this:

The fastest growing portion of the US electric market is in solar panel installation and EVs (Electric Vehicles).

Consider the following growth:

PV Solar and EVs produce as near real-time information about their energy production or usage.

This data is the issue.

Utilities want the data to be part of the electric grid while almost everyone else disagrees.

Regulators will be hearing both sides of the arguments about data control and best-practices. Given the importance of the issue for all parties, a final decision is likely years away but, initial decisions seem to favor the utility.
