Amends the Public Utilities Act. Provides that any supplier of energy that generates more than 500 kilowatt hours of electricity annually within the State (rather than any supplier of energy within the State) and all companies that develop, build, install, or maintain a renewable energy project with total annual revenues over $15,000,000 shall submit an annual report on all procurement goals and actual spending for female-owned, minority-owned, veteran-owned, and small business enterprises in the previous calendar year.
