CityLink Transit Center Roof Selected by Illinois Solar for All Program
The CityLink Transit Center (407 SW Adams) roof has been selected by the Illinois Solar for All (ILSFA) Program for the 2020-2021 program year in the Non-Profit/Public Facilities sub-program. The Transit Center roof was the only project selected by ILSFA in the Peoria area.
The ILSFA program provides greater access to the clean energy economy and solar energy to low-income households, non-profit organizations, and public agencies across the state through incentives that help make solar installations more affordable. The ILSFA Non-Profit and Public Facilities sub-program provides incentives for properties occupied by non-profit organizations and public facilities located in low-income or environmental justice communities. The CityLink Transit Center was designated as a non-profit/public facility and as a Critical Service Provider.
The eligibility requirements for consideration for this program are:
- The property is within either a qualified ILSFA environmental justice community or low-income community.
- The non-profit or public entity must be a Critical Service.
- Provider or organization can demonstrate community engagement.
“We are pleased the Downtown Peoria Transit Center roof has been selected by the Illinois Solar for All Program for the 2020-2021 program year,” said CityLink General Manager Doug Roelfs. “This project will provide us with long-term energy savings for a facility that is the hub of our bus routes and serves an annual ridership of over 2.2 million,” continued Roelfs.
The project has been submitted to the Illinois Commerce Commission (ICC) for contract approval. CityLink plans to partner on this project with Hawk-Attollo, LLC. as the solar development partner and Central Road Energy, LLC. as the approved vendor.
Prep work for this project is currently underway and it is expected to be completed in 2021.
