Solar For

Quite remarkably, despite the national epidemic of political gridlock, Illinois lawmakers took decisive action in December 2016, to address low-income access to solar electricity and solar employment. They created Illinois’s Solar for All Program under the Future Energy Jobs Act. which was signed into law in December 2016.

Everyone Should Have
