Illinois Solar for All (ILSFA) increases participation in solar energy projects serving low-income and environmental justice communities. Incentives are made available for residential properties, properties that house nonprofits and public facilities, and community solar projects serving customers with low incomes.
The program promotes equitable access to the solar economy through program incentives that help make solar more affordable for low-income communities.
ILSFA is a program authorized by the State of Illinois, overseen by the Illinois Power Agency, managed by nonprofit Elevate Energy, and funded by fees paid to utility companies, Comed, Ameren and several smaller electricity providers on their electric bills.
An essential principle of ILSFA is that participants must be guaranteed a savings on their electric bill and participants are not required to pay anything upfront for those savings.
ILSFA subsidies may come either to provide solar panels on a participant’s house or grounds or they may come through the participant subscribing to an ILSFA-supported community solar project (aka – a ‘solar panel farm’ located anywhere in the participating utility’s service area.)
Sustain Rockford served as a Grassroots Educators for ILSFA in 2019-2020; 1 of only 10 in Illinois!
