Clearway completes its first Illinois community solar project

Clearway Energy Group announced the completion of its first Illinois community solar farm, expanding access to local and affordable renewable energy in the state. Clearway will energize the 3-MWDC Southland Solar Farm, just outside of Kankakee, and will complete eight more community solar farms in the coming months.

Each of Clearway’s Illinois solar farms is subscribed to roughly 350 residential customers, with over 3,000 residential customers subscribed to these first nine projects.

“We are thrilled to activate our first community solar farm in Illinois in time for Earth Day and bring more renewable energy choices to residents,” said Valerie Wooley, VP of origination at Clearway. “While it’s only the beginning, these initial sites represent a commitment to local solar power among residents, municipalities, businesses, universities and more, while helping customers save money as they choose renewable energy. We thank all those who are coming together to tackle the climate crises and become a community that invests in local clean power.”
