Support clean energy: Fix the RPS

The Illinois renewable portfolio standard (the RPS) was passed into law in 2007 and requires 25% of the state’s power to come from clean sources by 2025. The RPS made Illinois a leader in renewable energy development between 2008 – 2012. Yet a glitch in state law has broken the RPS, halting renewable energy development and leaving Illinois behind as the market grows.
Maintaining a strong RPS is #1 priority for growing clean energy businesses in Illinois. Legislation now pending in the General Assembly would fix the RPS and jumpstart billions of dollars of clean energy development.
