No Cost Solar Program for Income Qualified Residents
This week the Cook County Department of Environment and Sustainability launched the Cook County Sun and Save program. In partnership with the Smart Energy Design Assistance Center (SEDAC), this initiative installs solar photovoltaic (PV) systems at no cost for income-qualified residences and homeowners in Cook County. Cook County Sun and Save fully covers the cost of residential solar system installations as well as some roof and electrical repairs on income-eligible owner-occupied homes in Cook County that meet the program’s guidelines. This program makes solar installations more accessible for eligible Cook County residents.
