1 MW AC

Development

Rock Falls, IL

In late 2020, Sol Systems completed its second project with the Illinois Municipal Electric Agency (IMEA) in Rock Falls, Illinois. Through a 20-year power purchase agreement, Sol Systems developed the project with zero upfront costs and helps IMEA place solar on the grid while diversifying its energy supply. This 1 MW AC ground mount project spans over 6.5 acres on the city’s land and produces approximately 1,780,200 kilowatt hours each year, providing enough power to serve 170 Rock Falls residents. It will also incorporate robotic mowers to maintain vegetation below the solar array in spring 2021. This project helps IMEA offset 850 tons of carbon each year.
