From the Solar Going Big (And Small) In Illinois article on Northern Public Radio:

“Certainly we believe it will be viable,” he said, pointing to two recent developments. “One is the regulatory avenues have opened up for us to make it a little more advantageous for us to develop solar. And then secondly, solar components continue to come down in price.”
