Illinois Solar Incentives

Illinois may not be the sunniest state, but switching home solar is still a smart long-term investment. In addition to the 30% federal tax credit, Illinois homeowners have statewide incentives such as net metering, which allows them to sell the excess energy produced from their solar systems to the local grid and earn credits in return. Further savings can be achieved with Monalee, which successfully cuts upfront costs by about 50% depending on system size and household energy needs.

The state of Illinois has already invested more than $2 billion in solar energy, and their efforts are paying off. In the last five years alone, solar prices have decreased by 4% while solar installations have increased by 2,000-percent. Per Illinois law, the state must achieve full energy sustainability by 2045. Programs like Illinois Shines and Illinois Solar for All (ILSFA) are in place to make solar more accessible for more people.
