community solar
Clean, convenient, carbon-free electricity

If you use electricity, you're eligible for community solar, a great way to get cheaper, pollution-free electricity without worrying about installing and maintaining solar panels. The Village of Oak Park has partnered with MC2 as their official community solar provider.

Participants receive a discount on their electricity bill, while supporting the development of renewable energy resources in Illinois.

To join, simply  sign up for a monthly subscription to MC2's community solar farm. Your subscription will help solar farms generate clean, reliable solar power and earn electricity credits that will lower your monthly bills.
