The Illinois Commerce Commission (ICC) plays a crucial role in regulating the state's energy industry. In this interview, ICC Chairman Carrie Zalewski discusses the Commission's responsibilities and how they pertain to the solar industry. With the recent passage of CEJA, the ICC's role has expanded, and specific dockets are being considered that will impact the solar community. Looking to the future, there are many areas of potential growth for solar developers, and interconnection remains a key issue for the industry. The ICC is involved in interconnection on both the distribution system and in the wholesale market space. Additionally, the Commission is working to address resource adequacy concerns in MISO. From a regulatory perspective, the future for the solar industry is bright, with continued growth and innovation on the horizon.
