Illinois is one of the best states for going solar due to its large amount of sunshine, low solar costs, and property tax exemptions for homeowners. You can use the federal solar tax credit and other incentives to save thousands of dollars when you go solar in Illinois.

Astrawatt installed our solar panels. At this point, we are awaiting Evergy‘s blessing to make them active. The guys with Astrawatt were helpful, friendly, and communicative.

The entire solar contract and install experience was great! Working with Matt on the sales team, he went above and beyond to support any issues I had and working with us to find the best financing option for my wife and I. He also explained the hardware and equipment that was going to be used and provided brochures for everything! He wasn't push, was very fun to talk to, not a pressuring sales person, and had some great "dad jokes". Their formal proposal had milestones with dates and activities that were clear and helped us understand all of the milestones of the project. Megan on the project management team always kept us up to date on changes to the permitting, the status of project milestones, and city approvals of the project. Jamie did a great job of letting us know the who, what, when, where of the install. He was present the first day of the install and attended the post install inspection with the local city official. The install team did a great job! The panels are square to the roof, they were all polite, easy to work with, and very helpful when answering questions. They did a pretty good job of picking up any pieces of wire or scrap, they all wore their appropriate PPE, and they were extremely fast! The install was initially quoted at 2 days and they were a little quicker than that. Again, I highly recommend Astrawatt for any solar installs! The people, the service, and the equipment are all top of the line!

Very impressed with the team that put up my residential solar panels, from sales to installation. Rhody in sales had to put in extra time working with the historical preservation office, (I basically did nothing) and he got it figured out. Justin and install team were professional and very neat. Lucky you, Astrawatt, to have such amazing employees!

Astrawatt Solar just finished installing our panels last week and we couldn't be more excited! Everything has been super easy, clear, and friendly from the first contact, all the way through installation. They were always very prompt and understanding with any questions or concerns that we may have had. I have already recommended them to friends and family.

Seldom have I experienced such professional service than I've had with Astrawatt Solar. Astrawatt did a great job installing my panels and quickly responded and resolved the few minor issues I experienced. The salesman, Bryan, was exceptional, very responsive, highly knowledgeable and always willing to thoroughly answer my questions and take care of my concerns. He frequently would record screencasts of himself answering questions and explaining things in detail, then he would email them to me. The financing options were especially confusing but Bryan recorded a video explaining them all in detail which I then shared with my husband. This was very helpful and a great business/selling practice. I felt that he was honest and up-front and didn't try to sell me a bigger system than I needed, unlike other solar companies I talked to. Some companies just tried to cram as many panels on my roof as they could which would have generated more power than I needed thus just causing me extra expense and to give all my extra power away to the utility company--ya, they would pay me a mere .02 cents a Kw, but that doesn't come close to covering the cost of the extra panels. Astrawatt calculated the number of panels I would need to maximize my investment and meet my energy needs based off of my past usage; not so many that I would generate more power than I needed, and not so few that I would be pulling from the grid more than I should. I appreciate them looking out for my interests and doing what was best for me. I highly recommend them for anyone looking to add solar to their homes.

Illinois Incentives

Illinois Shines

Illinois is one of the few states that offers Solar Renewable Energy Credits (SRECs). Here’s how it works:

  • Homeowners receive one SREC for every 1,000 kilowatt-hours (kWh) of energy their system produces
  • SRECs can be sold to local power companies at the market rate
  • You must work with an approved vendor to qualify

Utility companies in Illinois are subject to Renewable Portfolio Standards, which mandate they generate at least 25% of their energy from renewable resources by 2025. Buying SRECs from homeowners is one way these companies can accomplish that.

Illinois Solar for All

Illinois Solar for All (ILSFA) is a three-part program for low-income residents and nonprofit organizations. Low-income households can participate in community solar programs or install solar panels at a minimum cost.

The program is made possible through partnerships with approved vendors, who receive Renewable Energy Credits (RECs) for their participation. These vendors can sell RECs for a profit and pass these savings to homeowners, eliminating up-front costs and providing guaranteed energy savings.

Illinois Property Tax Breaks

The state of Illinois offers a property tax exemption for homeowners who install a residential solar system. This means that though your property value will increase, your property taxes will not.

Both active and passive solar energy systems are eligible for the tax exemption. For example, if you install a rooftop solar system and a sunroom addition, you may qualify for a tax exemption on both. This can maximize savings for homeowners installing multiple solar elements.

Visit the state of Illinois website to learn more about available tax breaks and apply. You should also check to see if your local government offers additional tax breaks.

Net Metering in Illinois

In addition to taking advantage of solar incentives, you may be able to participate in an Illinois net-metering program, sometimes referred to as net energy metering (NEM). These programs credit solar owners for the unused energy their systems produce. These credits can be applied to future utility bills to reduce energy costs.

Here are the major utility companies in Illinois that participate in net metering. Applications are accepted on a first come, first served basis.

  • Ameren Illinois Utilities
  • Commonwealth Edison (ComEd)
  • MidAmerican Energy Company

Visit the Illinois Attorney General’s website for more information.
