As part of the Clean Energy Jobs Act, there exists a program called Solar for All. This program incentives solar developers to design, install and operate solar projects in areas that are often under served; such as minority and environmental justice communities.
A lottery will determine which projects can proceed.
Solar developers will receive a higher rebate for RECs generated by the projects. In addition, payments for solar energy cannot exceed 50% of what the utility would charge for energy. This is intended to ensure the developers take the risk instead of the communities.
Illinois Solar for All is budgeted at $30 million through 2021 and would continue to be funded at 5% from renewable portfolio standard charges.
