There are many reasons to go solar in Illinois! Illinois offers Solar Renewable Energy Credits, Net Metering, and an Investment Tax Credit.

  • Solar Renewable Energy Credits: For each MWh of electricity your solar system produces, you will be given one Solar Renewable Energy Credit (SREC). You may sell this SREC in the market for its current value.

  • Net Metering: Illinois net metering policies allow solar customers to receive net metering credits for the excess green energy they put on the grid. Net metering credits vary by utility.

  • Investment Tax Credit: If you choose to buy your solar system with cash or a solar loan you will be eligible for a 30 percent federal investment tax credit (ITC).

It is important to know which rebates and incentives you may be eligible. For more Illinois solar information, please contact Solar Sam or click on the following link:
