The City of Elgin adopted the Sustainability Action Plan in 2011 and the Greenest Region Compact 2 in 2017. Both plans encourage energy efficiency and the use of alternative, renewable energy. The Elgin Sustainability Commission has partnered with EnergySage in an effort to make Elgin more "solar-friendly." The EnergySage portal provides residents and business owners a place to learn about and shop for solar. Shine on, Elgin!<br>
