Solar on the Southside

We provide community education and technical assistance to help folks access key energy efficiency and solar programs, which make houses and apartments more affordable, comfortable, and environmentally sustainable.

PCR is also leading efforts to ensure public housing residents enjoy the benefits of solar. Our community-based campaign to get the Chicago Housing Authority to commit to investing in solar was a success! Now we are working to ensure CHA makes good on their commitment to build a solar array in Altgeld Gardens and other public housing communities across Chicago. 

These projects are a great opportunity to train and employ local residents in the process as well as to pass along savings benefits to communities through new programs and other amenities. Our team is working on implementation of the Climate and Equitable Jobs Act, new state legislation that will generate more funding for and expand access to clean energy programs.
