    Service - Administrative Law Judge Ruling

    Notice is hereby given by the Administrative Law Judge that there appears to be two procedural paths for answering the questions raised in the Proposed First Notice Order: 1) going forward with a First Notice Order and addressing the questions during the one year allotted after publication of first notice, or 2) requiring another round of comments prior to the First Notice Order. The purpose of this proceeding is to improve the rules and requiring that the record be more fully developed before first notice is preferable because of the time constraints after publication of first notice. ELPC/CUB/IREC note that the Illinois General Assembly has allocated $30 million for distributed solar procurements, which are scheduled to proceed in June 2015, November 2015, and March 2016. It is unlikely, however, that new rules would be complete for any of those events regardless of the timeframe adopted for additional comments. Also, the record does not show any problems with the rules as they are now written. Thus, Staff’s Motion to Set Aside Briefing Schedule and Order the Production of Further Evidence is granted. Supplemental verified comments are due May 20, 2015 and replies to the supplemental verified comments are due June 3, 2015. Thereafter, a Second First Notice Proposed Order will be issued which will address all the comments. Notice served electronically to parties.
