Helping Low-Income Residents in Illinois Benefit from Solar
The Illinois Solar for All Program (ILSFA) is a low-income solar incentive program made possible by the Future Energy Jobs Act, which was enacted to help strengthen the state’s economy and move Illinois towards a clean energy future.
While the cost of solar is declining rapidly, it remains out of reach for many Illinois residents, and installing solar panels is not an option for renters and some owners. ILSFA will address these barriers by funding on-site and community solar projects that ensure no up-front costs and lead to measurable savings for low-income households and qualified non-profit and public facilities. In doing so, ILSFA will broaden access to the benefits of clean energy, including reduced energy bills, a cleaner environment, and solar energy jobs.

In anticipation of the full program launch in April, we want to make sure you are aware of this exciting program and the different ways you can participate.
