Once we connect you to a local Community Solar project and that project starts producing energy, you will start seeing savings on your bill every month for as long as you are with us, for the determined term length of the project. All Community Solar projects are remote, meaning that there is no installation necessary on your own home. The energy produced is sent back to the local grid.
Each Arcadia member participating in the program will receive a percentage of the solar savings that are generated by their panel subscription, and the remaining savings generated will be used to maintain and continue the project.
Eligible utilities: Ameren IL & Commonwealth Edison
Percentage of solar savings: 10%
Term length: 15 years
The first projects are set to become live in Summer 2020, you can track the progress of Community Solar in Illinois and learn more about project locations here.
