Solar Power has Illinois Roots

Mixed-use properties and steps towards “greener” energy go hand in hand in Illinois.

The first experimental solar plant was established in 1902, in Olney, Illinois. Solar energy continues to increase in use,with the largest urban array installed in 2010,in West Pullman, on Chicago’s South Side. Significant arrays utilize the rooftops of Chicago museums. A 20 megawatt plant was completed in LaSalle County in 2012.

Today, your property can contribute to a “greener” environment and maximize revenue-generating streams through mixed-use. Consider your options for solar arrays, and stay in touch with your regional LandGuy.


We have professional connections with several large solar companies and can represent your property in positive ways, as we work together to promote a healthy environment and sustainable growth in Illinois.
