Frequently Asked Questions

Community solar is when we allocate you a portion of a shared solar farm in Illinois that will produce clean, renewable energy on your behalf. The green electricity is sent to your utility company and is reflected on your normal utility bill along with your savings. You will see a 50% discount on your normal utility supply bill for the electricity produced by your allocation. Since the credits and savings will be applied directly to your electric bill, you will never receive a separate bill from Solstice. Your lights turn on as always. There is no installation, extra costs or downtime.

We are partnering with these two fantastic organizations to ensure that everyone in our community can take advantage of their local community solar farm as a broader part of the Illinois Climate and Equitable Jobs Act that was recently passed. With this new state program our residents can join a local solar farm administered by Solstice and receive energy credits that are guaranteed to lower the electricity bill. 

When you enroll, you will be allocated panels from a Solstice solar farm. Your panels will generate energy that will be credited to you on your electric bill, reducing your electric supply costs by up to 50%. Solar credits received are based on subscriber energy usage and the solar farm’s energy production, which can fluctuate month-to-month resulting in varied savings. Additionally, you will receive a $100 enrollment bonus for joining

Yes! We are encouraging everyone to participate in this program as it is free, safe, and guarantees a lower energy bill.

“Sometimes it can be hard for residents to understand and recognize a good deal with all of the advertisements and solicitations in today’s energy market. To assist Park Foresters, Village of Park Forest Officials have researched and vetted Illinois Solar for All as a viable program to be considered for homes that qualify. The sign-on bonus is legitimate. Likewise, there will be substantial monthly savings. And, perhaps most importantly, Illinois Solar for All is good for the environment.”
