Our Story

Rainy Solar was created to fully realize local, state, and federal incentives and credits under Illinois newly enacted FEJA (future energy jobs act) laws. Design / engineering / financing / legal / investor credit realization / PPA power subscription services / post energization billing and admin / maintenance. Currently producing over 2% of total IL total solar power commercially.  Will be the very first commercial community solar system in the state ABP (adjustable block program) to launch.

Rainy Solar was founded in 2016 by serial entrepreneur & industrial commercial real estate investor Ken Buckman

The unused rooftops with incentives seemed like a “no-brainer” and Buckman dove in with $millions of development well before the new laws were clearly defined.
