Community Solar Project Requirements

Applications for community solar projects must be made by an Approved Vendor, and community solar projects have additional terms and conditions compared to distributed generation projects.

The community solar standard disclosures and marketing material guidelines have been finalized. The finalized documents have been published here. You can view follow along with the stakeholder process for document review here.

Due to the very high interest in community solar projects that exceeded the available funding in each of Group A and Group B, the Agency and the Program Administrator developed the details of the lottery procedure that was used to select which projects are submitted to the Illinois Commerce Commission for REC contracts. The final lottery procedures are located in the Program Guidebook. The lotteries in the community solar categories were held April 10, 2019.
