Residential Solar in Illinois

This 10 kW AC system powers a home in Illinois. Not only are the homeowners saving money on their electric bill with their system, they are also preventing carbon emissions from being released into the atmosphere. In just the first year of its operation, this system is expected to produce 19,569 kilowatt-hours (kWh) of energy. That’s equivalent to almost 35,000 miles driven by an average passenger vehicle, or over 15,000 pounds of coal burned, or carbon sequestered by 18.1 acres of US forests in one year. Wow!
