Is Illinois sunny enough for solar?
How much does a residential solar system cost?
What incentives for solar are available in Illinois?
Both the federal government and Illinois provide incentives for home solar. The federal incentive is a tax credit worth 30% of the price of a solar system. With it, you reduce the income tax you would otherwise pay by this amount. Click here for more information on how to take the credit.
The Illinois solar incentive comes in the form of Solar Renewable Energy Credits (“SRECs”) you earn with your system. Most Illinois utilities are required to purchase these from you (at prices set by the Illinois Power Agency). The Agency hasn’t yet finalized the SREC price for 2018, but we expect it to amount to about 30% of the cost of a typical system. You should receive your SREC payment check within six months of energizing your system.
How much money will I save by going solar?
Given that a typical solar system would cost $10,000 net of incentives, a homeowner could save about $20,000 by going solar.
Another way we think about this is this: Assuming you have $10,000 to invest either in a solar system or some other investment, where would you put it? We’ve calculated that investing in solar is the equivalent of a taxable investment (such as the stock market) earning 14% returns per year for 20 or more years. For reference, the average S&P 500 stock market index return since 1928 is about 10%.
