New Incentives for Schools Make Solar Energy More Affordable than Ever

Thanks to the Future Energy Jobs Act passed in 2016, new incentives are available for Illinois schools to install solar panels, making it one of the best times to go solar.

Why go solar at school?

-Stand out as a sustainability leader in the community

-Create an educational enrichment opportunity

-Generate clean energy to power your school

-Lower monthly electricity costs

Solar Incentives for Schools

Through Illinois Solar Renewable Energy Credits, schools that install solar arrays are eligible to have 50%-90% of the total costs forgiven. Given the big discount, most schools can expect to see a payback in 3-5 years of installation and can expect savings from there on out for the 25-year lifespan of the average system.

Andromeda CG has partnered with locally owned and operated solar installers to provide educational support for schools that choose to work with them for their solar installation. Together, we provide a workshop to help teachers and administrators learn how to integrate their new solar power array into their classrooms and utilize the energy monitoring software provided.

As more than just a solar installer, we can also help schools tackle energy efficiency projects such as upgrading lighting and more. Even something as simple as selecting the utility provider that the school purchases electricity from can provide an immediate sustainable option. Check this page out to learn more about selecting a green energy provider to go completely renewable, even if the size of your installation does not offset your consumption completely.

The Future Energy Jobs Act put Illinois on the path towards a clean energy future – make sure your school is at the forefront of it!
