Illinois Solar Incentives Running Out

A megawatt (“MW”) is a unit of electrical generating capacity.  When MW Remaining reaches zero, no more incentives will be available.

This will be a tragedy on several levels.  First, Illinois homeowners will lose out on an option to save money on electricity and protect themselves against future cost increases.  Second, Illinois’s progress towards its climate goals will slow dramatically.  The state still only gets 7% of its electricity from renewables.

Three Things You Can Do about Illinois Solar Incentives Running Out

1. Schedule an on-line consultation to learn about your solar options right away
