What is Cook County Sun and Save?

Cook County Sun and Save accelerates the installation of solar photovoltaic (PV systems) for income-qualified residences in Cook County. The goal is to make solar PV installation accessible for eligible Cook County residents and to reduce energy burden, utility costs, and greenhouse gas emissions.

The Cook County Sun and Save program fully covers the cost of solar PV installations on eligible owner-occupied homes in Cook County. The program is for residents whose household incomes are above 80% of the Area Median Income (AMI) and at or below 120% of the AMI.

The program is intended to run through Summer 2026 or until funds run out.
