Energy Solutions Experts
Renewable Energy in Chicago, IL
Since we are an Illinois Commerce Commission Certified Installer, you can be sure you’ll get dependable and prompt installation with Kapital Electric. We offer trustworthy products, including American-made solar panels, making your switch to renewable energy easier than ever.
Choosing to buy solar panels will bring a number of benefits that leasing them doesn’t. Solar leasing companies often employ deceptive marketing techniques to entice customers with overblown savings, while actually pushing escalating payments for lease signers. You can read more about the downfalls of leasing here.
Residential and Commercial Solar Panels
As energy costs rise, solar energy is becoming more popular among homeowners and business owners alike. It’s estimated that each kilowatt-hour (kWh) of installed solar energy can increase the resale value of your home by $5,911—in addition to saving up to 55% on energy costs when including federal and state rebates.
The government offers a 30% tax credit on the cost of installation for solar panel owners, but only to the actual owner of those panels, which is why it’s vital to own your solar panels rather than lease them. When leasing, you’ll also be encouraged to upgrade your panels, despite their extremely long life. Once installed, renewable energy systems require very little maintenance.
After a consultation, our specialists will determine if your home is a good candidate for solar panel installation. We’ll also calculate the anticipated savings and guide you through the federal and state incentive programs.
We offer three forms of payment on solar panels, which you can read more about here. Whether you choose cash, a home equity loan, or a solar loan, we will help you find the option that’s right for you and your family. The important part is you own your solar panels, so you can continue to reap the benefits for years to come.
After you make the decision to switch to renewable energy, Kapital Electric will draw up an installation schedule, hardware options, and electrical grid integration to maximize the potential of your new commercial solar installation and minimize disruption of your day-to-day business operations.
Join the Tesla Revolution with Powerwall
Tesla’s Powerwall is a marvel of modern engineering. Kapital Electric Inc. is proud to be an official distributor of Powerball. Designed as a power backup, Powerball can meet all of your home’s energy needs in a typical day, storing solar energy and using it during the nighttime hours. Powerball also functions as a backup system during power grid failures. While the rest of your neighborhood creeps around the house by flashlight, you can enjoy the benefits of a fully-powered home for up to seven days. Best yet, owning a Powerball is an ethical decision, as you’re contributing to the reduction of harmful emissions.
EV Chargers and Generators
Installing an EV charger at your business can increase traffic and encourage users of hybrid and electric cars to head your way. Every electric vehicle contains a GPS Charging Station Locator, which will direct them right to your business. Whether you choose traditional charging stations or a solar-powered carport, you will find the financial incentives far outweigh the initial investment.
If you’ve been looking into switching to a natural gas generator, then you probably know about the host of benefits it can bring to your home. Natural gas is an alternative fuel source that is much cheaper and produced domestically, making it a better choice for the environment, since it reduces the need for imported oil.

Just had Kapital Electric install a home electric vehicle charger. They did a great job, they talked me through a few options we had with the install, and really did a very professional job of running conduit to my parking space. I would definitely recommend.

They were great! The consultation was convenient, they were there the following day, and they covered all my questions. They knew what they were doing and the install was quick and I barely knew they were there. It was a great experience all around!

Excellent company. Had a different company come out prior to Kapital and was unimpressed (and they were recommended for TESLA charger installs). They wanted me to provide specifications. I am not an electrician. How do I know? Kapital came out and it was a different story. Don was a pro and totally evaluated my needs and gave me solid advice. If you have an electric vehicle and need a charging station installed - these are the guys to do it. Kapital's installers came when they would and did a great job. The girl that called me for scheduling was pleasant and very accommodation, even giving me advice on when the best time was to have this done in relation to my vehicle delivery. Would definitely recommend. Very satisfied. Nice to have a professional company to do residential charging and solar. Impressive.
