We're helping you go solar with confidence!

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>

The City of Elgin does not in anyway guarantee, endorse or otherwise recommend the listed companies. The companies have met the minimum requirements outlined in EnergySage’s criteria for installer experience and qualifications.
