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.

    Sec. 11-117-1. Subject to the provisions of this Division 117, any municipality may (1) acquire, construct, own and operate within the corporate limits of the municipality any public utility the product or service of which, or a major portion thereof, is or is to be supplied to the municipality or its inhabitants and may contract for, purchase and sell the product or service of any such utility; provided, however, that any municipality may acquire, construct, own and operate without the corporate limits of any municipality any public utility for the transportation of persons; (2) acquire, construct, own, maintain and operate without the corporate limits of any municipality any electric power lines or substations necessary solely to provide power or a source of power for such municipality, and, when it is found necessary and in the public interest by the Illinois Commerce Commission, to acquire by eminent domain any property without the corporate limits of any municipality for such purposes, but no new customer which an electric supplier is entitled to serve under the Electric Supplier Act may be served from any line, lines or other facilities located without the corporate limits of a municipality unless waiver to serve such a customer is given in writing by the electric supplier; (3) lease any public utility owned by the municipality to any corporation organized under the laws of this state for the purpose of operating that public utility, for a period not longer than 20 years; (4) fix the rates and charges for the product sold and the services rendered by any such public utility; and (5) make all needful rules and regulations in relation thereto.
    However, no municipality shall acquire or operate a public utility for or in connection with the transportation of persons under the provisions of this Division 117 if there is operating in such municipality any other publicly or privately owned public utility that provides such a service; and no municipality located within or partly within a county having 400,000 or more inhabitants may acquire by eminent domain any land or right of way for any electrical power line or substation outside of its corporate limits.

65 ILCS 5/11-117-1.1

    (65 ILCS 5/11-117-1.1)
    Sec. 11-117-1.1. Service area agreement with electric cooperative.
    (a) The General Assembly declares it to be in the public interest that a municipality and an electric cooperative (as defined in the Electric Supplier Act) may voluntarily enter into an agreement defining the geographic areas in which each party shall provide retail electric service, and, if agreed, such service may be exclusive. This authority is in the public interest for the following reasons:
        (1) To avoid duplication of facilities for the
    
production, transmission, sale, delivery, or furnishing of electricity.
        (2) To minimize disputes between (i) municipalities
    
that own and operate a municipal utility for the purpose of providing retail electric service and (ii) electric cooperatives concerning the provision of electric service, since these disputes may result in inconvenience and diminished efficiency in providing electric service to the public.
        (3) To provide for the orderly and controlled growth
    
of municipalities and surrounding areas.
        (4) To recognize and protect the investment and
    
commitment of municipalities and electric cooperatives to provide retail electric service within their respective service areas.
    (b) An agreement entered into under this Section may cover geographic areas both within and without the corporate limits of a municipality.
    (c) An agreement entered into under this Section shall be subject to the approval of the Illinois Commerce Commission. An approved agreement may be enforced only by a party to the agreement by the filing of a complaint for interpretation with the Illinois Commerce Commission. The jurisdiction and authority of the Illinois Commerce Commission over any municipality which owns and operates a municipal utility for the purpose of providing retail electric service shall be strictly limited to the approval of the agreement and the interpretation of the agreement's terms. The Commission shall have no other jurisdiction over or authority to review or approve the construction of any project or operations of any municipality which is or may be a party to an agreement under this Section or joint action agency to which the municipality may be a member except to the extent now required in connection with the initiation of proceedings in eminent domain. In a proceeding to approve an agreement or interpret the terms of an agreement, the agreement shall be construed consistently with the public policy of this State as set forth in this Section.
    (d) The provisions of this Section are severable under Section 1.31 of the Statute on Statutes.
