Updating the database of the Illinois Compiled Statutes (ILCS) is an ongoing process.
Recent laws may not yet be included in the ILCS database, but they are found on this site as Public
soon after they become law. For information concerning the relationship between statutes and Public Acts, refer to the
Because the statute database is maintained primarily for legislative drafting purposes,
statutory changes are sometimes included in the statute database before they take effect.
If the source note at the end of a Section of the statutes includes a Public Act that has
not yet taken effect, the version of the law that is currently in effect may have already
been removed from the database and you should refer to that Public Act to see the changes
made to the current law.
(220 ILCS 5/8-403)
(from Ch. 111 2/3, par. 8-403)
The Commission shall design and implement policies which
encourage the economical utilization of cogeneration and small power
production, as these terms are defined in Section 3-105, item (7) of subsection (b),
including specifically, but not limited to, the cogeneration or production
of heat, steam or electricity by municipal corporations or any other
political subdivision of this State. No public utility shall discriminate
in any way with respect to the conditions or price for provision of
maintenance power, standby power and supplementary power as these terms are
defined by current Commission rules, or for any other service. The prices
charged by a utility for
maintenance power, standby power, supplementary power and all other such
services shall be cost-based and just and reasonable.
The Commission shall conduct a study of procedures and policies to
encourage the full and economical utilization of cogeneration and small
power production including, but not limited to, (1) requiring utilities to
pay full avoided costs, including long-term avoided capacity costs to
cogenerators and small power producers and (2) requiring
utilities to make available upon request of the State or a unit of
local government, transmission and distribution services to transmit
electrical energy produced by cogeneration or small power production
facilities located in any structure or on any real property of the State or
unit of local government to other locations of this State or a unit of
local government. The Commission shall report on this study, with
recommendation for legislative consideration, to the General Assembly by
March 1, 1986.
