The Solar Chicago program has been highlighted in the Chicago Tribune!
Solar Chicago is a new community wide group solar discount program offered by the City of Chicago, the World Wildlife Fund and Vote Solar. The City is participating in this program to help homeowners pool their buying power to secure significant discounts that make installing solar on your home more affordable than ever.
After vetting several solar companies, a volunteer community evaluation committee has selected the team of Juhl Renewable Energy Systems and Microgrid Solar as Solar Chicago's installation partner. As a result, they will pass along savings from reduced marketing costs and bulk purchasing to Solar Chicago participants to provide residential solar starting at $3.49 per-watt - more than a 25% discount off the average market installation costs.
In addition to offering Solar Chicago participants solar electric systems at a discount, the Juhl-Microgrid Solar team will also provide an incentive rebate for each system installed through the program, if the total installed solar capacity exceeds program goals.
