SAG Break:
Following past precedent, SAG will not hold regular meetings while EE Plan dockets for 2022-2025 are open at the ICC (anticipated from March to August 2021). The timing for this break is subject to change depending on when utility EE Plans are approved by the ICC. If there are topics that require discussion during this timeframe, meetings will be scheduled on an as-needed basis with feedback from interested parties. Meeting agendas will be circulated to the distribution list by the SAG Facilitator one week in advance of each meeting. This break does not impact the IL-TRM Version 10.0 update process.
