Community Solar Clearinghouse Solution (CS²) expands to residential service
Metropolitan Mayors Caucus and the Power Bureau developed the Community Solar Clearinghouse Solution (CS²) Program to allow municipalities to connect their residents to local community solar projects. The new program will help residents and small businesses save money on the supply side of their electric bill during these difficult times. As a trusted voice to citizens, municipalities can extend fair and transparent subscription terms to residents and let citizens know that an energy offer is credible. The program gives interested citizens the choice to subscribe to community solar developments in northern Illinois, but it does not require any actions on behalf of all residents. The program is also compatible with existing aggregation programs.
How to Participate
If your community is interested in connecting residents to a community solar subscription offer, please follow the steps on our newly revised CS² Program webpage. The first step in the process is to complete an Expression of Interest form.
About the Program
The community solar industry is evolving, so we're pivoting to the CS² Residential Program from the CS² Program for Municipal Facilities. All communities previously enrolled in the CS² Program for Municipal Facilities are still eligible to subscribe their municipal utility accounts.
