About the Program

Illinois recently approved the Clean Energy Jobs Act creating Illinois's Community Solar Program. Through this program, Illinois residents can sign up to support a new, local, solar project. Energy from the project flows to the electric grid, replacing fossil fuels and lowering emissions. When you sign up to support a project, you receive clean energy credits that lower your electric bill every month.

More Information

What Is Community Solar?

Community solar is a new state program that enables homeowners and renters to support a local clean energy project and receive savings every month on their electricity bill.
Here's how it works:

1

Energy from the sun is converted into clean electricity by the community solar farm.

2

This clean electricity is connected to the utility, replacing fossil fuels and lowering emissions in the community.

3

Electricity flows as normal from your utility through the broader electrical grid to your home.

4

Everyone who signs up supports new clean energy and receives savings every month on their electricity bill!

How You Lower Emissions and Save

Our community solar projects
generate 100% clean energy
 from the sun.
Clean energy flows to your utility’s electricity
 grid, replacing fossil fuels and lowering
 emissions in the community.
You receive solar credits from the 
project each month, lowering 
your bill. You make a positive impact
 and save money each month.
