Going solar is a major decision, so partnering with a major company like Surge Solar & Associates is the smart choice in going solar.
What per kilowatt-hour rate are you currently paying for electricity?
The higher the electricity rate before you go solar, the more money you can potentially save.
Is your roof good for solar?
The direction your roof faces and how much shade it gets will affect how much electricity roof mounted PV will generate. The roof’s condition should also be considered.
How much electricity will the system generate?
If your system produces more electricity than you use over an annual period, you may not receive credit for all the electricity generated.
What Is The Illinois Shines Program?
Illinois Shines is the brand name of the Adjustable Block Program, a state-administered program for new solar photovoltaic (“PV”) systems. The program provides payments in exchange for 15 years of Renewable Energy Credits (“RECs”) generated by new PV systems. These payments, made by Illinois utilities, vary depending on the system’s size and where it is located. Participating in Illinois Shines is the same thing as participating in the Adjustable Block Program.
What are RECs and why are they valuable?
What are RECs and why are they valuable? RECs represent the environmental value of the electricity generated from solar panels, but not the electricity itself. Whoever owns the RECs has the right to say they used that solar power. Utilities must purchase RECs to meet their obligation to supply a certain amount of power from renewable energy. RECs can also be valuable to businesses seeking to be able to say that they use solar power. By participating in Illinois Shines, you will transfer the RECs from your PV system to an Illinois electric utility. Selling your RECs will not affect your PV system’s production. For more information on RECs, see a video at vimeo.com/113250210
Do you have to allow your RECs to be sold in order to go solar?
Although you can keep your RECs or sell them to someone besides utilities, participating in Illinois Shines and thus allowing your RECs to be sold to a utility is likely to be your best financial option. Selling your RECs through this program will make it more likely that your PV system will save you money.
