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.

Upcoming News & Events


This meeting is open to EVERYONE. You do not need to be a member or have received an invitation.

At our September meeting, the Elgin Sustainability Commission's Solar Workgroup will hear an informational presentation from Eligo Energy's Jennifer Ohlman on the topic of electric aggregation programs and how selecting a green energy provider (like South Elgin did) can help Elgin reduce its collective carbon footprint.

Individual project teams (e.g. Solar For All, EnergySage, Solar In Schools, etc) will also breakout and meet after the Eligo Energy presentation.
