The Future Employment Jobs Act passed last year ushered in the newest, largest solar growth market in the country.  On Tuesday, October 17 at 6:30pm, the Green Drinks Kankakee presenter Mark Wilkerson, from SCG Power with 30 years in the solar energy arena, will review that law and its impact on Illinois citizens and explain how each sector of the solar business will benefit.

This new policy impacts citizens not only considering installing solar panels on their own home or business but also landowners who have an opportunity to lease their land to solar developers for lease rates better than the typical crop yields returns.

One of the latest ideas in solar energy development is community solar. Over 70% of Illinois citizens cannot install solar on their own property because they either rent or live in a condo or other unsuitable property for rooftop solar.  Community solar allows full participation and is therefore the most promising market segment in the industry today.  Come to find out how it works
