During a meeting of the Cook County Business and Economic Development Committee Tuesday, county commissioners will consider an ordinance that would exclude solar energy systems from non-residential property tax assessments.
The measure would help incentivize developers and property owners to install solar energy systems on buildings — helping the county increase green energy use — by eliminating the fear it will affect their property tax bills.
The county’s technology, tax delinquency and human relations committees will also hold meetings on Tuesday.
