On Sunday, the Christ for Everyone Ministries congregation celebrated the soon to be installed Bishop Kenneth Franklin’s Christ for Everyone Community Solar along with Groundswell, Sunlight General Capital, and Supreme Solutions. The community solar project will bring energy savings and economic empowerment to low-income households of Cook County as a part of the Illinois Solar for All (ILSFA) program.
On August 17, Groundswell, in partnership with the Housing Opportunities Commission of Montgomery County and Montgomery County Green Bank, celebrated with a ribbon cutting for Montgomery County's first community solar project built to serve low- and moderate-income households. Conventional solar projects often include financial barriers such as high consumer credit scores and long-term contracts that limit solar access to the affluent.
Groundswell’s focus has always been and will continue to be the people we serve. Coming from a community that has been left behind, I have always wanted to be able to properly respect and uplift my community, and Art has given me the opportunity to do so.
