(9/27/21) Illinois' energy policy just got an overhaul with the passage of the Climate and Equitable Jobs Act (CEJA) which Governor Pritzker signed into law on September 15, 2021.
The bill overhauls Illinois' energy policy to move away from reliance on fossil fuels and shifting it towards renewable sources like wind and solar.
This bill will make the energy industry in the state greener and cleaner. "So we are going to be the first Midwest state with a 100% emissions-free power sector," said J.C. Kibbey, Natural Resource Defense Council. Under the compromise bill, Illinois' electricity will come entirely from renewable energy sources by 2050.
