Trajectory developed Rockford Solar in conjunction with the City of Rockford and other local stakeholders, and the project was selected in the first round of the Illinois Solar for All program. Nexamp is the long-term owner and operator of this system which is currently under construction and will be finished by the end of 2021.
Once finished, the project will bring utility bill savings to over 500 low-income families in the Rockford Area and bring economic development to the environmental justice community the project is located in.
When completed, local low-income residents will be able to subscribe to this project through the Give-A-Ray℠ Program. Nexamp and Trajectory Energy Partners are partnering with ComEd on this program so that income eligible customers with an active ComEd account can take advantage of a community solar project without paying the usual subscription fees.1ComEd
