State Energy Independence Plan

Archived: 11/01/2010

The Governor of Illinois developed an energy independence plan that sets a goal of replacing 50% of the state's energy supply with homegrown fuels by 2017. Specifically, in relation to biofuels, the plan will: 1) invest in renewable biofuels by providing financial incentives to build up to 20 new ethanol plants and five new biodiesel plants; and 2) increase the number of gasoline stations that sell biofuels, to ensure that all gasoline stations in the state offer E85 by 2017, help the auto industry increase the number of flexible fuel vehicles they produce, and increase public awareness about E85.
