Welcome to the Evanston Community Solar Reservation List
Support Evanston’s Climate Goals and Secure Guaranteed Savings with Community Solar
Residential and Small Commercial consumers located in the City of Evanston can capture the benefits of solar without any investment or installing any solar panels on your roof.
With the CS² Program, Evanston consumers can:
- Support new solar development in northern Illinois
- Save off ComEd energy supply costs with a guaranteed 20% savings off net metering credits
- Sign up for $0 cost
- Stay with your current utility
- No termination fees
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.
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.
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.
