Rockford Solar was selected in the first round of the Illinois Solar for All program and will be constructed in 2020.  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.

Trajectory Energy Partners and The Rockford Solar for All Coalition are excited to work with Rockford residents on a 2 MW low-income community solar project sited on the Horsman Quarry.

The Rockford Solar for All Coalition.

The Coalition consists of Trajectory Energy Partners, community advocates, and organizations working together to bring community solar to the Rockford area. Through The Coalition, Trajectory hosts community meetings, and collaborates with non-profits, institutions, and advocates.

The Site: The Horsman Quarry.  

Located within the 7th Ward, the Horsman Quarry is a filled quarry owned by the City of Rockford located within an Environmental Justice Community and Low-Income Census Tract. Unsuitable for other types of development, siting community solar on it allows it to bring multiple community benefits to the Rockford area.

Next steps:

Trajectory is in the process of subscribing residents to this project and the project will be energized by the end of 2020. If you have any questions, or are interested in participating, please reach out at
