Illinois Solar for All


For Homeowners

Single family and multi-family homeowners can participate in the Distributed Generation program, which provides homeowners with incentives for solar installations on any residential property that serves households with incomes of 80% or less of AMI. Qualified participants will have no upfront costs and any ongoing costs or fees will not exceed 50% of the value of the energy generated from the solar installations. Single-family homeowners have saved an average of $900 on annual electric bills.

Learn more about the Distributed Generation program and check your eligibility.

For Homeowners and Renters

For many homeowners, installing a solar systemat home isn’t the best option because of technical or suitability hurdles like the direction or angle of the roof. Community solar overcomes these obstacles by offering all energy consumers a way to tap into collective solar projects in their communities.

Renters and homeowners can subscribe to a share of a community solar system through the Community Solar program. Participants are credited on their utility bill for the energy produced by their share of the system.

For Nonprofits and Public Facilities

The Non-Profits and Public Facilities program provides incentives for properties occupied by non-profit organizations and public agencies located in low-income or environmental justice communities. Projects are installed onsite and directly serve the energy needs of qualified participants.

Learn more about the Non-Profits and Public Facilities program and check your eligibility.

For Approved Vendors

All ILSFA projects are developed by contractors called Approved Vendors. Approved Vendors are vetted and must meet rigorous program requirements, including quality workmanship, participant savings, and consumer protections. Solar developers that are already Approved Vendors in the Adjustable Block Program can apply to become ILSFA Approved Vendors. Visit the ILSFA website to learn more about registering to become an Approved Vendor.
