FOX VALLEY LANDS LARGEST SOLAR DEVELOPMENT IN AREA HISTORY

Kendall County, City of Plano, Fox Metro Reclamation, and Mooseheart Approved

According to Progressive Business Solutions, Kendall County, the City of Plano, Fox Metro and non-
profit Mooseheart will save a combined $14.5 million in energy costs over the next 25 years from
solar energy projects approved by the State of Illinois. When “energized” it will be the largest
installation of Solar Power in the Fox Valley area. The solar fields are expected to be online and
producing power by the 4th quarter of 2019.

Funds were made available from the Adjustable Block Program under the Future Energy Jobs Act (FEJA)
passed in December, 2016. Progressive Business Solutions emphasized that “no new taxpayer dollars
will be used to build the solar fields, and FEJA will enable us to build the field with no upfront
costs.”

The Kendall County Solar Field will save County taxpayers over $4 million dollars with this program
that will allow the County to reduce costs without any capital investment, and reduce Carbon
Emissions b over 212,000 metric tons, or the equivalent to eliminating over 45,000 passenger cards
or eliminating
519 million gallons of gasoline, this is a good fit for Kendall County and its residents.
