Commercial Solar Illinois

Business Solar Solutions for The Prairie State

#1 Commercial Solar Company for Illinois’ Businesses

If you have a large commercial business building or facility , there’s never been a time to invest in solar panels for your IL business. ComEd and Illinois have began another large fund to help spur mass adoption of renewable energy projects including solar. The states’s SREC’s, ComEd Rebate combined with the federal solar tax credit makes commercial solar power for businesses a no brainer using our proprietary model. ComEd‘s smart inverter rebate and the Illinois SREC’s are capped and on a first come first serve basis. We have already began the paperwork filings for our clients to help them secure these subsidies.

Our Proprietary Energy Savings Payment Model

The Energy Savings Payment Model (ESP) is unique to Solar One. This model combines benefits from each traditional solar model into a revolutionary hybrid model where the client receives the tax advantages, minimizes the upfront expense, increases the property value, and receives instant energy savings. As the client receives energy savings, Solar One shares in a percentage of those savings to help pay down the system’s cost. Solar One assumes all risk and maintains the system for free until the system is paid off.

  • Creates positive cash flow from Day 1.
  • No upfront expense, simply pass along the equal value of the tax benefits you would have otherwise paid the Federal government.
  • ​You own outright and don’t share profits with a bank.
  • ​Free maintenance until the system is paid off.
  • ​Solar equipment increases the value of your company assets.
  • ​No risk of performance; if it doesn’t produce electricity, you don’t share savings.
  • ​In the event you sell your facility, Solar One contract is freely assignable.

New Round of 2021 Illinois Solar Incentives

The Land of Lincoln has passed a historic clean energy bill mandating 100% renewable energy by 2050. The Prairie state’s new legislation allocates $500 million in subsidies to the Illinois wind and solar industries. Before this, solar projects across the state were at a complete standstill due to funding running out.

The subsidies are a 350% increase on investments made on solar in the state. This presents a significant savings opportunities for IL businesses looking to own their own solar array.

Fox Illinois writes:

She says the small distributed generation category has been expanded to include 10kW to 25kW, which means high consuming residential properties and small commercial businesses will now receive the best subsidy pricing and a better payout schedule for selling back to the grid. Knox explains that before the energy bill, payments were given out over a five-year period as quarterly payments, but now they’ll be given in one lump sum for 10kW to 25kW projects.
