Numerous programs and incentives have been introduced to hasten the adoption of solar energy.

Illinois Solar Incentives

In Illinois, electricity rates are on the higher side, but thanks to net metering, you can earn credits on your electric bills for the surplus energy you generate and return to the grid. This setup enables you to mitigate your electricity bill costs by selling the excess energy back to the utility company.

With this incentive, you can earn direct payments from the utility company for each kilowatt-hour (kWh) of electricity your system generates.

Enjoy more financial freedom with a property tax assessment exemption on your solar installation.

Federal Investment Tax Credit

Beyond the state-level incentives, the Federal Investment Tax Credit (ITC) further sweetens the deal. This credit permits you to claim up to 30% of your solar system expenses as a tax credit, lowering the financial hurdle on your path to adopting solar energy.
