Everyone Should Have
Access to Solar

Illinois Solar for All (ILSFA), established by the Future Energy Jobs Act in 2016 and expanded by the Climate and Equitable Jobs Act in 2021 , helps make solar installations more affordable for income-eligible households and organizations located in income-eligible and environmental justice communities throughout Illinois.  Homeowners, residents of income-eligible properties, facilities for non-profit organizations, public facilities,  and religious institutions are eligible for program incentives. 

With Illinois Solar for All, participants will see no or low upfront costs and fees will not exceed 50% of the value generated from the solar PV system.  With state and utility funding, the program pays incentives to solar companies and passes the cost savings to participants.  Illinois Solar for All is administered by Elevate Energy on behalf of the Illinois Power Agency, an independent state government agency.

Illinois Solar for All
Creates Jobs for Underserved Communities

StraightUp Solar proudly hired individuals from the Illinois Solar for All training programs and actively participates in the Illinois Climate and Equitable Jobs Act (CEJA) workforce and contractor training programs to help Illinois residents prepare for and train for jobs in the clean energy industry. These programs train individuals in communities that historically faced economic and environmental barriers, bolstering a diverse workforce in the clean energy industry.

Our 74.9kW solar PV system installation at Heaven View Christian Fellowship in Peoria, included graduates of the Solar Pipeline Training Program. This program, a partnership between Community Transformation Partnership, Jobs Partnership Peoria, Tri-County Urban League and Illinois Central College, provided hands-on training for future solar installers. Our crews come from equity investment-eligible communities and we actively recruit in those communities. In addition, we recruit formerly incarcerated individuals, graduates or current members of the foster care system, or former energy workers. We are here to get you started on your clean energy career path.
