Solar energy on the rise in Illinois

Solar energy is on the rise across Illinois', thanks to an initiative set up by the Pritzker administration.


Shannon Fulton with Straight Up Solar said that solar energy would see an enormous boom over the next couple of years due to Gov. Pritzker's plan to make Illinois to 25% renewable energy by 2025.



According to a study of wind and solar energy's economic impact, McLean County is the top renewable energy producer in the state.


Over the next 10-years across the state, renewable energy will generate over $8 billion in economic output and create over 53,000 jobs.
