Solar Energy

The Village of Winnetka is currently participating in the SolSmart program, funded by the US Department of Energy SunShot Initiative, which helps local governments reduce barriers to solar energy growth and makes it easier for homes and businesses to go solar. The Village is also an active member of the Illinois Municipal Electric Agency (IMEA) and utilizes available funding through IMEA’s Energy Efficiency Upgrade Rebate Program.

If you are interested in going solar, our Community Development department has residential and commercial/multi-family checklists and design worksheets. To learn more about the specifics of solar energy installation processes, the Interstate Renewable Energy Council publishes helpful guides.
