Last week, I wrote a post at sustainablog about the second renewable energy feed-in tariff being introduced through legislative channels in the United States. Illinois Representative Karen May (D-Highland) has introduced HB 5855, or, the Illinois Renewable Energy Sources Act, which is more or less based upon the feed-in legislation introduced in Michigan last fall. The bill would require utilities to purchase renewable energy from any producer at a fixed rate for a fixed period of time.
