Illinois’s incentives for residential solar are on track to run out this December.

Illinois Shines Small Distributed Generation Incentive Depletion Forecast
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.
