Illinois: A Case Study in Innovative Legislation The Energy Infrastructure Modernization Act Consumer-centered regulatory model Catalyst for $2.6 billion in infrastructure and modern grid investment Delivers much needed economic development and thousands of jobs Reforms a century-old regulatory process Protects customers and enhances regulatory oversight 8 .

Grid Modernization Investments include infrastructure improvements and smart grid deployment:  Inject or replace more than 4.000 12kV and 34kV DA devices  Deployment of 4 million smart meters  Installation of cyber-secure communications infrastructure 9 .700 miles of underground cable  Refurbish 28.000 manholes.  Replace and reinforce 15.000 wood poles  Upgrade of transmission-fed substations – analog to digital  Installation or upgrade of over 3.

Legislation Includes Performance Based Metrics 20% Improvement in System Outage Frequency (SAIFI) 15% Improvement System Outage Duration (CAIDI) $30M Reduction in Uncollectible expenses (Bad Debt) 50% Improvement in Unaccounted for Energy (theft) 20% SAIFI Reduction in Southern and North East Regions 75% Increased Service Reliability 90% Reduction in Estimated Bills 90% Improvement on Consumption on Inactive Meters (CIM) 10 .
