Going Solar in Illinois

Over the last ten years, Illinois has made significant investments in sustainable energy, focusing on the integration of solar power as a key energy source for the future.

According to the Illinois Renewable Portfolio Standard (RPS), the target is to have renewable sources account for 25% of total electricity sales by 2025.

In efforts to accomplish this, the state has implemented policies and incentives for homeowners going solar.

Illinois Has a Goal!

Illinois is on the path to an incredible growth of over 1,700% in its solar capacity installations in just five years, according to the Solar Energy Industries Association.

Illinois residents and organizations can benefit from state incentives when they decide to switch to solar energy.

These incentives include rebates for excess energy production and programs that help with or eliminate equipment and installation costs.

Homeowners who invest in solar may benefit from these various incentives in addition to the federal solar tax credit.

Is Going Solar Worth it in Illinois?

Investing in solar energy is a wise financial move, made even more accessible and affordable by the incentives offered by federal and state governments.

Illinois residents who are renting their homes can take part in the community solar programs offered by Illinois Shines or ILSFA (Illinois Solar For All). Homeowners, on the other hand, may qualify for SRECs (Solar Renewable Energy Credits) or net-metering credits.

The growth of the marketplace competition has resulted in an increase in jobs in the clean energy sector. This, in turn, translates to lower costs for customers looking to install solar panels.
