What is
Community Solar?

Great news! Solstice is partnering with ENGIE to offer ComEd customers in Illinois access to community solar, which allows households and businesses to access solar power without installing solar panels on their rooftops. By joining an Illinois solar garden, you can enjoy monthly electric bill savings and the good feeling of going green without the typical hassles or costs of going solar. Finally: an electric bill you’ll really love!

*Your payment is equal to the value of bill credits, assuming the default electricity supply charge with your utility, minus your discount of 20%. If you’re on a different supply rate, you are still eligible to participate. Savings may vary.

    *Environmental equivalencies calculated using the EPA’s Greenhouse Gas Equivalencies Calculator based on an estimated 4,200,000 kWh of year 1 production.

    Solstice is an Approved Designee of the Illinois Shines Program, also known as the Adjustable Block Program or “ABP.” Illinois Shines is a state-administered program implemented by the Illinois Power Agency to promote new solar development and solar PV systems. Solstice’s community solar farms produce local solar power, and Renewable Energy Credits, or “RECs,” which are sold to the Illinois Shines program to help Illinois reach its renewable energy goals.
