Solar project by Primergy


Illinois, United States

Year built

The distributed solar portfolio in Illinois (“CEDG IL”) consists of 34 behind-the-meter distributed solar PV projects developed, constructed, and now operated, by Primergy

CEDG IL’s portfolio totals 15MW of assets located at local schools, waste water treatment plants, and municipal agencies in southern Illinois. The projects were completed under budget and are fully contracted under 25-year, fixed-priced PPAs. The projects also benefit from 15-year Renewable Energy Credit contracts and are eligible for utility-based inverter rebates.

By being outfitted with solar energy, the schools also benefit from an environmental education component with regular class tutorials concerning the technical function and benefits of solar energy technology. The schools also benefit from co-located generation, as there are additional efficiencies and cost savings from behind-the-meter delivery of solar power through reduced transmission costs and additional revenues for the schools through leasing of property to accommodate the solar assets.

Target Outcomes
  • 15 MW Output
  • 91 people employed during Development & Construction
  • $5M expected in lifetime community benefits through wages paid, property taxes, and tax abatement programs
  • 34 of 35 sites located on school facilities
  • 3 plants have pollinator programs
  • Teach the Teacher Solar Program
