How does Community Solar in Illinois Work?

Step 1

Large scale* community solar gardens are developed at off-site locations by private developers to generate clean, carbon-free electricity.

* Maximum of 2,000 kW’s of capacity per site.

No solar rooftop panels are required on your residence.

Step 2

The community solar garden generates clean, carbon-free electricity and supplies it to the utility’s power grid for delivery to its distribution customers including homes, schools and business.

Step 3

You enroll as a subscriber to the community solar facility, and you receive a net metering credit on your monthly utility electricity invoice for your portion of the solar power generated each calendar month. MC Squared Energy Services, LLC. (mc²) bills you separately for 80% of the net metering credit you receive, and therefore you retain 20% as your monthly savings! There are no other fees involved – it’s that simple to support solar generating resources in Illinois and receive a guaranteed savings for participating.
