Illinois Compiled Statutes

Information maintained by the Legislative Reference Bureau
Updating the database of the Illinois Compiled Statutes (ILCS) is an ongoing process. Recent laws may not yet be included in the ILCS database, but they are found on this site as Public Acts soon after they become law. For information concerning the relationship between statutes and Public Acts, refer to the Guide.

Because the statute database is maintained primarily for legislative drafting purposes, statutory changes are sometimes included in the statute database before they take effect. If the source note at the end of a Section of the statutes includes a Public Act that has not yet taken effect, the version of the law that is currently in effect may have already been removed from the database and you should refer to that Public Act to see the changes made to the current law.

By October 1, 1965, or within such further reasonable time as may be fixed by the Commission, each electric supplier shall make and file with the Commission such map or maps as will clearly indicate the location in this State of the supplier's existing lines. On November 1, 1965, or within such further reasonable time as the Commission may determine, the Commission shall find to be accurate those maps to which no objection has been filed under this Section. If before November 1, 1965, or before the end of such a reasonable time period determined by the Commission, an electric supplier who may be adversely affected by an inaccurate map files with the Commission a written objection to any map, the Commission shall set a hearing on such map or maps and give reasonable notice to the electric supplier filing the map and to the supplier filing the objection. At the hearing, the Commission shall determine on the basis of the evidence presented whether or not each map is accurate. After its determination the Commission shall find to be accurate each map in question or require that a revised map, made in accordance with its determination, be promptly filed which when filed shall be found to be accurate by the Commission.
    No public utility is required, however, to file a map showing its existing lines in any county in which there are no existing lines of an electric cooperative and which is not adjacent to a county in which there are existing lines of an electric cooperative; and no electric supplier needs to indicate on such a map, except as otherwise required by the Commission, any existing line which is more than 5 miles away from an existing line of another supplier.
    No electric supplier is required to file a map showing its existing lines in any incorporated municipality except that, if 2 or more electric suppliers are furnishing electric service on the effective date of this Act in any incorporated municipality, each such supplier shall file a map showing the location of its existing lines in the portion of the incorporated municipality where those lines are adjacent to the existing lines of another electric supplier.
    Such maps found to be accurate by the Commission as provided in this Section are public records of the Commission and are prima facie evidence of the location of the existing lines thereon portrayed.

    Except as otherwise provided in this Act or (in the case of public utilities) the Public Utilities Act, no electric supplier may construct new lines, or extend existing lines, to furnish electric service to a customer or his premises which another electric supplier is entitled to serve, as provided in this Section, except with the written consent of such other electric supplier subject to the approval of the Commission as to such consent, if required.
    This Section does not deprive an electric supplier of any right to furnish permanent service under a contract existing on the effective date of this Act to premises receiving temporary service from another supplier on the effective date of this Act.
    Nothing in this Section prevents a generation and transmission electric cooperative from furnishing service to its member distribution electric cooperatives which are not incorporated municipalities.
(Source: Laws 1965, p. 1206.)

220 ILCS 30/7

    (220 ILCS 30/7) (from Ch. 111 2/3, par. 407)
    Sec. 7. Except as otherwise provided in this Act, until the respective service areas of the affected electric suppliers have been determined as provided in Section 6, no electric supplier may make an extension of existing lines or construct new lines for the purpose of furnishing service to a customer or premises which it is not entitled to serve under Section 5, or furnish service to any customer or premises which such supplier is not entitled to serve under Section 5, unless in any such case such electric supplier gives written notice to the electric supplier or suppliers which may be adversely affected by the proposed construction, extension or service. Any electric supplier which claims that it should be permitted to serve any customer or premises which could be served by such proposed construction, extension or furnishing of service may within 20 days after receipt of such notice or, if no notice is received, not later than 18 months after the completion of such proposed construction, extension or the commencement of service, file its complaint with the Commission which shall proceed to determine the issue as provided in Section 8.
    The electric supplier giving such notice may, however, commence such construction, extension or service, subject to the subsequent final determination of the Commission as to which supplier should be permitted to furnish such service.
    This Section does not apply to and no notice need be given under this Section by (1) a public utility constructing new lines, extending existing lines or furnishing service in any county in which there are no existing lines of an electric cooperative and which is not adjacent to any county in which there are existing lines of an electric cooperative or constructing new lines, extending existing lines or furnishing service more than 5 miles away from an existing line of an electric cooperative; (2) a generation and transmission electric cooperative making a construction or extension of lines solely to serve its member distribution electric cooperatives which are not incorporated municipalities; (3) any electric supplier constructing new lines or extending existing lines to furnish service exclusively to its own property and for its own use; and (4) any electric supplier making, for the purpose of furnishing service to a customer, an extension of 300 feet or less of line having a voltage of 600 volts or less which does not make the service of that supplier any nearer to the existing lines of another supplier than at the effective date of this Act.

220 ILCS 30/8

    (220 ILCS 30/8) (from Ch. 111 2/3, par. 408)
    Sec. 8. When a complaint has been filed as provided in Section 7, the Commission shall proceed, after reasonable notice to the suppliers concerned, to a hearing to determine which of the suppliers is entitled or should be permitted under this Act to furnish the proposed service. The Commission shall first determine whether temporary service should be authorized and may issue a temporary authorization to a supplier permitting the making of extensions and furnishing of service while the dispute is pending. The Commission shall then make its determination as to which supplier is entitled or should be permitted under this Act to furnish the proposed service. In making this determination, the Commission shall act in the public interest and shall give substantial weight to the consideration as to which supplier had existing lines in proximity to the premises proposed to be served, provided such lines are adequate. In addition, the Commission may consider, but with lesser weight, (a) the customer's preference as to which supplier should furnish the proposed service, (b) which supplier was first furnishing service in the area, (c) the extent to which each supplier assisted in creating the demand for the proposed service, and (d) which supplier can furnish the proposed service with the smaller amount of additional investment. The Commission, however, shall give no weight or consideration to the fact that any supplier has or has not been issued a certificate of public convenience and necessity in the area proposed to be served.
    After making its determination, the Commission shall make findings of fact and render its decision as to which supplier is entitled or should be permitted to furnish the proposed service. The decision of the Commission constitutes an authorization to that supplier to render such service and revokes any temporary authorization granted by the Commission while the dispute was pending.

220 ILCS 30/9

    (220 ILCS 30/9) (from Ch. 111 2/3, par. 409)
    Sec. 9. (a) Any customer receiving service from any electric supplier, which is not subject to the Public Utilities Act, who contends that he is not receiving adequate service from that supplier, or who contends that he is being discriminated against by that supplier, may complain to the Commission. If the Commission on hearing finds that the service is inadequate and that there is another supplier whose service would be adequate and who is willing to serve that customer, the customer shall be released to such other supplier unless the supplier against whom complaint is made makes its service to that customer adequate within a reasonable time to be fixed by the Commission. If there is no such other supplier the Commission may direct that service be made adequate. If the Commission finds on hearing that such customer is being discriminated against as compared with other customers of the electric supplier so supplying such customer, the Commission shall order such supplier to cease and desist from such discrimination.
    (b) If any electric supplier, which is not subject to the Public Utilities Act, refuses to serve a customer whom it is obligated to serve and who has applied for service to the supplier in accordance with the supplier's standard rules as to service, the Commission, on receiving a complaint from the customer and after a hearing thereon, may direct the supplier to serve that customer.

An electric supplier, after notification by the Commission, may file during the 3 month period after the date of notification a claim for credit in such proportionate amount as computed pursuant to Section 2-202 of The Public Utilities Act. If the proportionate amount is less than $10, no notification will be sent by the Commission, and no right to a claim exists as to that amount.
