Trajectory Energy Partners has developed this project, Gar Creek Solar, in Kankakee, IL with a two-tiered approach to community engagement. For subscriber acquisition and engagement, Trajectory has partnered with community advocates to identify potential low-income subscribers starting with residents in Kankakee county, then Cook and Winnebago counties.
In partnership with the Preservation of Affordable Housing (POAH), the South Suburban Senior Housing and South Chicago Salud Center & Senior Housing buildings in Chicago and the suburb of Harvey will act as the anchor tenants for the project. These properties were acquired by POAH in 2019, and have preserved over 120 affordable apartments for low-income seniors.
For support of the project site, Trajectory has worked with the landowners of the Gar Creek Solar site, the Economic Alliance of Kankakee County, the Kankakee Community College, local unions, and community leaders. Fosler Construction Company will lead construction and installation of the project.
The Gar Creek Solar site is currently under construction, and will begin the process of subscribing residents to this project in the coming months. If you have any questions, or are interested in participating, please reach out to email@example.com.
