Note: Information on community renewable projects in Illinois is also listed in the Net Metering program entry.

Illinois's most recent rules for community renewable generation projects are derived from Public Act 102-0662 (titled the Climate and Equitable Jobs Act) of 2021.

Community solar projects are owned and operated by third parties, which offer subscriptions to individuals and businesses. Bill credits are provided by the electric utility at a rate which includes energy supply, transmission, and capacity values but excludes delivery service costs.

Incentives for community solar projects are provided through the Illinois Shines and Illinois Solar for All programs, which purchase RECs from project developers.
