Solar Referral Frequently Asked Questions

Who is Affordable Solar of Illinois?
Affordable Solar of Illinois is a premier full-service solar energy provider. We’ve been providing full-service installations since 2011, and we’ve installed thousands of systems throughout the state for property owners of all kinds.

Do I have to install solar panels to participate in the solar referral program?
No, this solar referral program is open to anyone who wants to sign up to help spread the word about the benefits of solar energy.

How does the Affordable Solar of Illinois Program work?
When you click on the button to visit the portal, fill out the form on that page to sign up as an Affordable Solar Agent. Once this step is complete, you will receive access to a full-featured portal that allows you to easily make referrals through a personalized link, track the status of your referrals as they qualify, see payments according to which stage(s) they reached through the process and more. To share your personalized referral link, you can share it directly in the same way you would via email or social media. The portal also offers you a variety of tools to help make sharing easy, as well as a place for you to directly input referrals yourself.

Do all referrals qualify for the $50 and $300 rewards?
Unfortunately, no, not all solar referrals will qualify for the $50 and the $300. First, the person must qualify for solar which involves a variety of factors, including whether the property is within Affordable Solar service area and that they own the property where they would like to have solar installed, among other qualifying factors. If they qualify and receive a proposal from Affordable Solar, then you will be eligible to receive the $50 reward. Then only if your referral decides to install solar through Affordable Solar, then you will be eligible to receive the $300 reward.

I made a referral, but I don’t see it in my portal. What should I do?
To qualify for the reward, the referral must be captured by Affordable Solar prior to signing the contract, either via your unique referral link, you directly inputting the referral, or by your referral telling us prior to signing up. However, if you believe an error has occurred, reach out to

How will I receive payment for a solar referral?
You will be able to identify when payments are made through the Referral Rewards Paid tab within the Agent Portal. Your $50 solar referral rewards will be added together into a single gift card that will be delivered to you digitally via email. Your $300 solar referral rewards will be delivered to you via check.

When can I expect payment for my referral?
We send gift cards and check payments once every month. The timing of your referral can impact when you receive payment. You’ll receive your gift card payment approximately one month after your referral received their proposal. If they decide to move forward with installing solar, you’ll receive your check approximately one month after your referrals system has been switched on. Other occurrences may impact the timing of payment, including holidays, approval of payment, confirmation processes from the bank and more. If it’s been more than 60 days and you still have not received payment, please reach out to us at

I think I should have received the payment. What should I do?
First, check the Track Qualified Referrals tab on your Agent Portal to ensure that your referral has registered in the system. Then check to see if the payment has been made on the Referral Rewards Paid tab. If the referral is not listed, or it says payment has been made but you can’t find it in your email or mail, please contact us at
