With regards to the delivery requirements, does the seller have to be able to actually transfer/retire the RECS by the delivery date? For example, if a REC bidder wins 100,000 RECs, it would have to deliver 10,000 RECs by August 31, 2011. Will the bidder have to be able to physically transfer/retire the 10,000 RECS by August 31, 2011 within PJM/M-RETS?
Yes. You may also transfer through the North American Renewable Registry (“NARR”) to the account of ComEd by that date if you are NARR qualified.
Are energy credits and buy backs available for residential and small commercial customers that use small vertical wind turbines? Where can I reference the procedures and programs available from ComEd?
This procurement is sponsored by the IPA and solicits bids for standard products and RECs with standard energy products provided by wholesale suppliers. While residential and small commercial customers can participate, it is likely not very practical and energy and RECs can be sold by these customers to aggregators. Under the Illinois Public Utilities Act ComEd only buys energy and RECs as approved by the Illinois Commerce Commission (ICC) in the Illinois Power Agency’s (IPA’s) plan and only buys forward energy and RECs through IPA administered procurement events, subject to ICC approval. Your situation sounds more like it would work with “net metering”. Please visit https://www.comed.com/sites/customerservice/Pages/interconnection_netmetering.aspx for information on ComEd net metering opportunities.
The supplier fee is calculated per block per product. Therefore, should you win a combination, the supplier fee would be calculated as (the fee)*(the number of products in the combination). Should you win a 1 combination of the on-peak 2011-2012 calendar year product, your supplier fee would be $795*12=$9,540.5/16/2011, in

A corrected Part 2 Form was posted on May 4, 2011. This is the final form to be used by Bidders.

Please confirm that a bidder awarded unsecured credit through a Guarantor can elect to post cash instead of executing a Guaranty. In this scenario, the unsecured credit threshold would be $0 until a guaranty is executed.
During the term of the Master Agreement, a bidder relying on the financial standing of a guarantor may elect to cancel the guaranty, or put the guaranty amount to zero, and post cash or a letter of credit for any collateral requirements. You may cancel the Guaranty upon 30 days notice provided that you submit substitute security in the form of cash or a Letter of Credit if there are outstanding collateral requirements from the mark-to-mark. You may amend the amount of the Guaranty upon notice to ComEd, usually within a few days.
However, for purposes of presentation of your Proposal, if you named a Guarantor in the Part 1 Proposal, the Procurement Administrator will prepare the Master Agreement and Guaranty on that basis for submission with the Part 2 Proposal. If informed with sufficient time prior to issuing the Notification of Qualification, the Procurement Administrator will accommodate a request to change the amount of your Guaranty to zero prior to the Bid Date.
The Procurement Administrator prepares the Guaranty using the elections in the Supplement to the Part 1 Form that you submitted in your Part 1 Proposal. This Guaranty is included in the CD provided to you upon qualification.5/12/2011, in
