Spotlight on Solar Energy Projects in Brookfield

Did you know that Brookfield property owners are undertaking cutting edge solar energy projects in Brookfield?  In the past 2 1/2 years, the Village has seen 5 solar energy projects either on a stand-alone basis or as part of larger home improvement projects.  These include projects located at:

  • 3615 Arden
  • 3617 Prairie
  • 3637 Prairie

Consistent with the Village’s “Greenest Region Compact 2” resolution adopted by the Village Board of Trustees in 2016, the Village supports sustainability goals for energy efficiency.

Additionally, the Village has solar friendly permitting.  The Village now streamlines solar and other building permits, using a single permit application form for intake.  For a checklist of the building permit process used for solar project and other projects, please refer to the link here or contact one of our helpful building inspectors at 708-485-7344 extension 3.
