Stephenson County, Illinois — In December 2016, the Illinois Legislature passed the Future Energy Jobs Act, putting Illinois on the path to a clean energy future. That new law created opportunities for land owners, homeowners, businesses, local governments, and community organizations to install solar on their own property or be part of a community solar project.
Tonight at the Freeport Public Library a group called Trajectory Energy Partners invite you to an open Town Hall to discuss the opportunities for solar development in Freeport and Stephenson County.
According to their website, Trajectory Energy Partners works with organizations and communities to find the right solar option for them and builds solar projects with strong community support, integrated into the local landscape. We work closely with land owners and community organizations to:
- Identify potential locations for rooftop solar and community solar projects.
- Recruit local families, businesses, and organizations who want to be first in line to be part of a community solar project.
- Build support for projects in the community.
At tonight’s Town Hall meeting Trajectory Energy Partners will detail how land owners, communities, businesses, and residents can get started and the benefits of a solar project for them. They will listen for community input on potential solar projects and to engage in a discussion about the opportunities for Freeport and Stephenson County communities.
If you would like to be part of this discussion, come to the Freeport Public Library tonight, Tuesday, February 6th at 6:00 p.m. for this exciting conversation about the future of solar in Illinois.
