Dear Officials at the ICC and the PJM power grid operator:
As an Illinois consumer who cares about my power bills, I urge you to petition the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) to extend the June 1 deadline for enacting legislation to counter the Minimum Offer Pricing Rule (MOPR).
Given the pandemic, it’s only fair that states like Illinois be given more time to develop and pass their own clean energy legislation to counter the negative impacts of the MOPR. The FERC-ordered changes to the electricity market will lead to higher bills for most Illinois electric customers and it will also slow the progress of renewable energy across Illinois.
Please stand up for Illinois consumers and urge FERC to extend the June 1 deadline. Thank you for your time.
