Solar Advances in IL

Solar energy is a fast-growing economic sector, and ELPC is leading the charge to make the Midwest a solar development center. Creative policy advocacy is driving the market expansion, developing new financing approaches to make solar work in more places and supporting new large-scale solar “brightfields.”

In 2011, ELPC advocacy achieved Illinois’ solar “carve out” in the state’s Renewable Energy Standard that will produce 650 megawatts of installed solar by 2015, and we are removing barriers to distributed solar generation for households and small businesses. In Michigan, Ohio and Iowa, we advanced policies that support distributed solar projects.
