On December 18, Elevate Energy—the administrator of the Illinois Solar for All Program—held a stakeholder engagement session covering the program’s grassroots education provisions. The Future Energy Jobs Act (FEJA) mandates that up to 5% of funds available under Solar for All be allocated to community-based groups to “assist in grassroots education efforts.” Particular emphasis is placed on outreach in difficult-to-reach communities, low-income communities, and environmental justice communities. Elevate is currently in the process of determining how best to implement this element of the law.
