Press Enter to show all options, press Tab go to next option

The Village of Schaumburg is participating in the SolSmart program funded by the U.S. Department of Energy SunShot Initiative, which helps local governments reduce barriers to solar energy growth and make it easier for homes and businesses to go solar.

Schaumburg has achieved the Silver level designation in the SolSmart program indicating the village is “open for solar business”. The village streamlined its permit and plan review process, and updated its Solar Energy Code to encourage the use of solar energy as a renewable energy resource. New solar energy systems reduce energy demand, reduce the use of fossil fuels, create jobs and will help Schaumburg achieve the goals of the Comprehensive Green Action Plan.

Refer to Schaumburg’s Commercial and Residential Solar Energy Systems Resource Guides for information about permits and the application and inspection processes.
