The upfront cost for installing a solar rooftop is about $22,000 in Illinois, said Delurey, but the state will pay for about $8,500 of that through an incentive program, and you can claim a hefty 26% rebate on that initial cost on your federal taxes. That reduces your upfront costs by about $14,200, making the tab about $7,800.
