Community Solar for Chicago HOPES for Kids!

Calling all members of the Chicago HOPES for Kids Community! We’re going solar with Solstice and invite you to join us. Employees, families, and others affiliated with Chicago HOPES for Kids can join an Illinois solar farm, support renewable energy in our community, and enjoy up to 20% savings on your annual electric supply costs* with no installation or upfront payment required.

When you join, Solstice will donate $200 toward Chicago HOPES for Kids’ summer program! Your enrollment will support new and powerful opportunities for city youth this year, from art projects to STEM work to read-alouds. This offer is available to all ComEd customers. Finally: an electric bill you’ll really love! Enroll now or fill out the form below to learn more about Solstice’s Community Solar program.

*Your payment is equal to the value of bill credits, assuming the default electricity supply charge with your utility, minus your discount of 20%. If you’re on a different supply rate, you are still eligible to participate. Savings may vary.

    Chicago HOPES for Kids is excited to partner with Solstice to raise funds for our summer program! You can help everyone enjoy the summer sunshine a little more by signing up to receive your power via a Solstice community solar project. Every sign-up means big energy savings for you, and a $200 gift to Chicago HOPES for Kids!

    Your support will help us provide high quality outdoor enrichment to students experiencing homelessness all summer long, including exciting hands-on STEM projects like building robots, outdoor art activities including a mural at one of our partner shelters, and of course our key component of literacy through read-alouds and 1:1 reading time with volunteers. Help us reach our goal of $2000 and complete your sign-up today!

    Here’s How Community Solar Works:

    Your Community Solar Garden’s Impact

    In the first year of your community solar garden’s operation, it will have an environmental impact equivalent to:

    Artboard – 3_retinaCreated with Sketch.

    Not burning more than 3,000,000 pounds of coal

    Growing 50,000 tree seedlings for 10 years

    Artboard – 1@3x_retinaCreated with Sketch.

    Taking 654
    cars off the road

    *Environmental equivalencies calculated using the EPA’s Greenhouse Gas Equivalencies Calculator based on an estimated 4,200,000 kWh of year 1 production.

    Big Impact; Small Commitment

    Eliminate the hassle

    Solstice is an Approved Designee of the Illinois Shines Program, also known as the Adjustable Block Program or “ABP.” Illinois Shines is a state-administered program implemented by the Illinois Power Agency to promote new solar development and solar PV systems. Solstice Community Solar Farms produce local solar power, and Renewable Energy Credits, or “RECs” are sold to the Illinois Shines program to help Illinois reach its renewable energy goals.
