At Solect, we’ll put the sun to work for you. We’re experts in helping businesses like yours cut costs with clean, affordable solar energy. After all, commercial solar is our only focus. We’ll be with you every step of the way, with a practical, consultative approach to deliver a customized solar solution.


Did you know the average commercial building spends 30% of its operating budget on utility costs? We can change that. Commercial solar:

  • Saves you money. Enjoy dramatically lower energy bills from day one. Most systems pay for themselves in just a few years.
  • Protects from rising costs. Energy costs keep rising. With solar, you can effectively lock in a predictable, affordable rate.
  • Boosts property value. Commercial properties equipped with solar are more valuable than facilities that rely solely on fossil fuel-generated energy.
  • Brings customer goodwill. Customers and employees alike are attracted to businesses that demonstrate a commitment to sustainability.
Illinois Solar Incentives

Illinois Solar Incentives

With over $200 million in funding annually, Illinois solar incentive programs include:

  • Renewable Energy Credits (RECs) – To help meet the state’s RPS goals, utilities can purchase RECs at a rate of 1.4 REC per 1,000 kWh of energy generated per solar array
  • Rebate program – Rewards solar system owners based on kW installed, paid upfront in year one
  • Net-metering – Compensates solar system owners for “net excess” energy production each month
In addition to the state’s incentives, there are also federal incentives available for solar. The Federal Investment Tax Credit (ITC) is a 30% tax credit for solar systems installed by December 31, 2019. After 2019, the ITC will begin to decline so investments made within the next year will yield the best returns.
