The State of Illinois has adopted a school wind and solar generation program, authorizing the funding through the Finance Authority Act for low-interest loans to school districts and community college districts for engineering studies, feasibility studies, research studies, and construction costs for wind and solar generation projects. A special revolving loan fund was established to support this initiative within the State Treasury.
The new law became effective in August 2009.
