Distributed Energy in Illinois

On September 13, 2021, the Illinois General Assembly passed a historic omnibus energy package that will usher in a broad expansion of the state’s community solar program. The Climate and Equitable Jobs Act expands the Illinois community solar program to more than 1.5 gigawatts (GW) of solar power over the next decade, enough to power over 285,000 additional homes. The legislation brings long-term stability to Illinois’ community solar program and will help the state develop a more equitable, low-cost, and carbon-neutral electric grid. Community solar is expected to play a major role in helping Illinois achieve the ambitious climate equity goals laid out within the legislation, and Apex Distributed Energy is seeking to lease suitable parcels and commence development activities on eligible land across the state. 

Are you a landowner in Illinois?

You may be able to sign up for solar energy on your land.

  1. Let us know you're interested here.
  2. If your parcel is 20 acres or more, we'll investigate your property to ensure it is a suitable site for distributed solar. If you're parcel is less than 20 acres, it might be too small to be eligible, but we're happy to hold onto your information in case there are new opportunities in the future.
  3. If your land is eligible, we will prepare a lease agreement for you to review.
  4. Once you've signed, we do the rest—from developing the site, to getting permits, to building the project, to selling the power that's produced.

The best part? You get paid the whole time.
