Our Solar Story

New Prairie Solar is a branch of New Prairie Construction, Central Illinois’ first worker-owned construction company. New Prairie was founded in 1988 by central Illinois natives Julie Vogel Birdwell and Jill Mulder.

Long committed to green building and renewable energy, New Prairie began partnering with local homeowners to install residential solar photovoltaic systems in 2013. In 2015, we launched New Prairie Solar to provide solar PV installation to the greater Champaign - Urbana community and East Central Illinois.

New Prairie Solar follows the same work ethic and high standards as the construction branch of our company. We stay on top of industry best practices, new products and installation techniques, and changes in legislation that affect our customers.

This means we can help you find the best placement and size for your array, walk you through available rebates and incentives, and complete your installation in a timely manner. We also help make sure you’re saving as much money as possible through home efficiency.
