Brighter Energy, Savings up to 65%

In addition to immediate energy bill savings, federal and Illinois state incentives help you save up to 65% off the cost of your solar array. Investing in solar can also increase your home value, benefiting you when it's time to sell or refinance.

Brighter Energy,
More Control

Solar is like owning a mini clean energy power plant on your roof (or yard). With utility rate increases in Illinois, going solar is a great way to lower your energy bill and lock in your utility costs. A solar + battery solution can protect against outages.
