North Shore residents and small businesses in the Cities of Highland Park and Lake Forest and the Villages of Deerfield, Lake Bluff, Northbrook, and Skokie will soon have an opportunity to save money and help develop renewable energy thanks to Illinois’ largest municipally sponsored community solar program.
Solar developers have committed to make over 10 megawatts available over the next year to qualified residents and small businesses in participating communities through the CS2 Residential Community Solar Program. Subscribers will save 20% on their monthly electricity charges based on the solar generation credits achieved. To support equitable access to the program, there are no credit checks, enrollment fees, or termination fees.
Community solar allows residents and small businesses to subscribe and receive credits on their electric bills. Participants can support solar power without installing their own rooftop panels and the subscriptions help finance and construct small solar facilities that may not be built otherwise.
