Oak Park residents can have a portion of the electricity generated at a solar farm credited to their monthly ComEd bill by participating in the community solar program.
Community solar is for the 80 percent of households and businesses that can’t install solar panels because their roofs can’t handle the additional weight, are shaded, or, as a renter, don’t own the roof.
Oak Park’s program does not have upfront costs, will not lock residents into a long-term contract and guarantees savings if the subscriber follows a few simple steps.
Unlike other subscription offers available in the market, the Oak Park community solar program requires no credit check or minimum credit scores.
Opportunities to subscribe are still available — visit www.oak-park.us/communitysolarsignup for more information and to sign up.
