The Illinois Solar for All program was slow to start in part because of its complexity and consumer safeguards.
Illinois’ exponential solar growth is already slowing, putting the state’s renewable energy goals further out of reach.
Solar backers are hoping lawmakers will offer more flexibility on how soon Future Energy Jobs Act funds need to be spent.
Legislation that sought to boost the shrinking fund for solar incentives is on hold, as are many installations across the state.
Solar advocates are concerned that the transition to a localized value-of-solar rate is happening too soon.
