Promoting renewable energy through EDUCATION and ADVOCACY.

A Message from ISEA's Executive Director 

The Illinois Solar Energy Association (ISEA) is in the process of organizational changes in order to continue to advance our mission to promote the widespread application of solar in Illinois. 

Founded in 1979 as a 501(c)3 non-profit, the organization was focused on public education for the majority of its history. In the last decade ISEA expanded its efforts to include working to ensure stable policies and regulations for solar development in Illinois. 

Currently ISEA is 700 members strong comprised of both business and individual memberships. In order to ensure that the dual focus of education and advocacy continues to grow along with the industry and development in the state, ISEA is launching a 501(c)6 nonprofit trade association.  This organization will allow ISEA to expand its efforts in policy and advocacy. All ISEA business members will be part of the 501(c)6 trade association beginning in 2020 and individual members will remain members of the 501(c)3. 

All current Illinois Solar Energy Association members will be asked to vote to change the name of the 501(c)3 to the Illinois Solar Education Association in elections taking place in December. The Illinois Solar Energy Association will become the name of the trade association.

We at ISEA are very excited about these changes and believe that the two organizations working in tandem will best support the growth of clean energy in our state!
