  • The deadline for redline edits and comments/responses for the TRM, and for edits to positions in the Non-consensus memo, is Thursday, Sept. 6, 2018.
  • Please contact iltrmadministrator@veic.org if you have questions, have problems uploading your comments, or need help navigating the IL TRM TAC SharePoint site.


Comment Instructions:

  • This includes all four volumes of the Almost Final version of the full IL TRM v7.0. Each is presented in a clean version as well as a version with redlines of all changes made during this update cycle.
  • At this point, the information contained within the TRM should be substantially complete. As outlined in the official work schedule, review at this stage should be focused on ensuring that the document reflects what was agreed to through the IL-TRM Update Process and TAC meetings and correcting any typographical or other inadvertent errors (i.e., comments should be focused primarily on identifying nits, errors, or oversights and not raising new substantive issues).
  • Comments or responses identifying such concerns should be uploaded to the Stakeholder Comments folder on the SharePoint site here. As usual, to ease the administration and to maintain transparency in the commenting process, please provide one redlined document per company for each document for which you have additional comments or edits. Please add your company name and date to the file name.
  • We have also uploaded a draft memo outlining the current non-consensus positions here. This memo provides details of two potential non-consensus issues – relating to the Advanced Thermostat Cooling Reduction Factor and the Load Reducing and HVAC replacement Interaction. We have provided a summary of the issue followed by a Comparison Exhibit table where we have attempted to succinctly articulate the various positions provided. The memo also includes an Appendix containing key commentary and documentation provided throughout the process. Please limit comments to critical omissions or factually incorrect statements or for correcting or clarifying where we have incorrectly articulated a position, and make them as redlines to the memo and upload to the Stakeholder Comments folder on the SharePoint site here. Also if you would like to add your party to any of the existing positions articulated in the table, or to provide a new position – please let us know during this comment cycle.
  • Since these issues are currently non-consensus, for Advanced Thermostats the text within the TRM draft indicates the appropriate assumption for Ameren (consistent with 13-0077 Order on Rehearing) and for all others (consistent with 17-0312 Order). We have removed the footnote on all the Shell measure HVAC efficiencies (heating and cooling) that has been proposed to direct the appropriate use of existing or new efficiencies based upon funding of the HVAC replacement measure, due to Ameren’s objection (consistent with 13-0077 Order on Rehearing).
  • Note – the current draft of the 4.5.4 LED Bulbs and Fixtures and 5.5.6 LED Specialty Lamps measures reflects VEIC’s initial proposal to apply the EISA backstop adjustment to specialty and directional lamps in 2021. As per the 8/28 TAC call and subsequent conversations, agreement has not yet been reached on whether further adjustments are appropriate. We plan to continue this discussion during the next TAC call on 9/4.
