Fill out our ONLINE QUOTE FORM or give us a call. Our crews install solar across the Midwest, so just contact the office closest to you, and we’ll help you get started.
You want accurate numbers right from the start.
In order to provide you a quick, detailed, no-obligation proposal, we need to get to know a little bit about you, your property and your electricity needs. This information helps us calculate your system cost, your expected savings, and financing options for your system.
To prepare your quote, we’ll need:
Your 12-month electricity usage history. This is very easy to get from your utility company. We can even help you get this information.
Your property’s address so that we can evaluate your property remotely, using satellite imagery from Google Earth. Our software calculates your roof space and each surface’s solar exposure, telling us how many panels will be required to generate the amount of energy you need.
Information about your home, including square footage, current heating and cooling equipment, and your goals for going solar.
Your contact information, so we’ll know how to get your quote to you!
That’s all we need to get started! Once we have your information, we’ll look at your property, run the numbers, and create your detailed proposal — usually in just a day or two.
“We have been thoroughly impressed with our solar panel project that we purchased from SunSource Homes. The initial bid price was very accurate with regard to the final installed price, and the system is generating enough power to offset our entire electric bill just as advertised. Their pricing was competitive with other providers.”
-Jeff Ward, SunSource Customer

Our experience is your advantage.
SunSource has been installing solar since 2011. Our professional customer care team and installers take care of all the details, from structural analysis of your home, permitting, integrating with your local electricity utility company’s net metering agreement, and more, our experienced team will button up the details.
From the electrician to the installation crew, everyone was very friendly, polite and took pride in their work. They made sure that every wire/conduit/panel was placed appropriately so as to not affect the aesthetics of our house. Would 100% recommend them to anyone considering the solar option.

Saving thousands of dollars per year for decades! It will work on small or large homes with any type of roof. SunSource has extensive experience in solar energy system design/installation on many projects throughout North America. Let your home be our next project!
National Federal Tax Credit
There is currently a 26% Federal tax credit for all project costs associated with solar power projects completed in 2020! These tax credits can be used immediately or spread out over several years. This helps significantly boost the ROI of your solar project. Solar qualifies for a 5 year Accelerated Depreciation.
Illinois Solar Incentives

Tax credits + state incentives provide a savings of 65% on a typical Illinois installation!
Save Even More
Organize a Group Buy
Are you interested in forming a group buy with your neighborhood, family and friends, or organization? This will help you save even more, with volume discount.
Payback in 5 - 9 years
In most residential applications, our solar energy systems will generate enough savings to give our customer a payback period of 5-9 years. Larger systems will have a shorter payback period. The solar system produces energy which helps to offset or eliminate your home electric bills.
Return on Investment
For those people that are motivated by the hard bottom-line numbers, let’s talk about ROI (Return On Investment). Based on your final cost of the solar system, after all incentives, most of our customers will see a return of 11-20% per year. That is better than most other forms of investments. And best of all, Solar is an investment that comes with a 25-year warranty! Try getting that from your financial planner.
String Inverter System vs. Enphase Energy System
Think of solar panels like bulbs in a string of holiday lights. In conventional inverter systems, when one panel fails, the whole system goes out. Or when one panel’s output drops — thanks to fallen leaves, a passing cloud, or some other unavoidable factor — the system’s overall performance drops to match that lowest-performing panel. With microinverters, each panel operates independently — so no matter what happens to any one panel, the rest of your system keeps shining bright. | Learn more about how how Enphase inverters compare to other available equipment
Integrated Project Management
At SunSource we have the ability to handle every aspect of your project in-house. Permitting, design, engineering, code-compliance, zoning, all issues can be handled from our office. Most of the competition use subcontractors for most of the items listed above, and even has a sub do the actual installation! We maintain control of all aspects of your project to ensure the quality of the job.
Energy Storage/Backup Power
Energy Storage and Backup Power are becoming a hot item lately! We can provide as much, or as little, energy storage as our clients need or want. We will work closely with you to determine what type of system is needed to accomplish your goals. The next time a storm knocks the power out you’ll be humming right along like nothing happened!
All of our solar systems are designed with the ability to individually monitor each and every panel in the solar array via the internet. This allows us to stay on top of any issues that may come up over the years for all of our past customers. Real-time data monitoring can save thousands of dollars over the life of a solar system.

Long-Term Financial Security
Almost everyone is concerned with their long-term financial security. A solar system can help elminate the constantly rising utility bills for your home. Many people experience their electric rates going up on an almost annual occurance. This can add up to a significant amount of money 10-15 years down the road. That frees up your financial resources for things that are more important for your family.
Increase the value of your home
Our experience with home sales has taught us one thing, homes with Solar sell much faster, for more money than comparable homes in the neighborhood. When properly marketed and listed, all the homes we’ve sold with solar have sold in days, not weeks, with multiple offers. We have always recovered 100% of the cost of the solar, over and above the appraisal!
In our never-ending effort to provide the highest quality projects for our clients, we have made sure that the solar panels and the micro-inverters of our solar systems carry a minimum 25-year replacement warranty. Yep, you heard that right, 25-years!! Our company is so confident in our products that we back it up with a 25-year labor warranty as well.
