Yes, Illinois does get enough sun!
On average, Illinois receives 4-5 hours peak sunlight per day - as much as most south eastern states, and more than enough to profit from going solar.
Surprisingly, solar panels function most efficiently in cooler temperatures - which makes Illinois’ moderate-to-cool climate ideal for year-round solar.
Chicago receives 189 days of sunshine per year - only 31 days fewer than Germany, which is the world’s leading solar market.
