Your New Energy Future Starts Here

You asked, and we delivered. Now, you can enjoy Sunrun’s solar savings in The Land of Lincoln.

Brighter Days and Big Savings Ahead

While you love the life you’ve built for yourself in Illinois, it’s hard to get past the state’s extremes. You know what we mean—intensely hot summers and insanely cold winters that are only getting worse,1 not to mention sky-high electricity bills when it’s time to crank on the AC or turn up the heat.

That’s why solar power in Illinois is making futures brighter in a big way, including yours. Thanks to the introduction of Future Energy Jobs Act, you’ll see Illinois thrive with the creation of local jobs, the expansion of energy efficiency, and clean energy for low-income communities.2 Plus, solar panel output actually improves in colder temperatures and works in snowy regions.3 So what’s in it for you? You have the chance to cash in on solar savings. Here at Sunrun, we can help you get started.

Illinois Solar Incentives, Rebates, & Tax Credits

Solar Savings Types Value of Savings

Other Programs Variable (Net Metering)

**Customer’s ability to monetize rebates, incentives and tax credits depends on several factors, including, without limitation, continued state subsidization of these policies, the applicable Sunrun product type, and whether a customer purchases or leases a solar system from Sunrun.
