Environmental Snapshot for 875 N Michigan Ave
There may be assistance to install solar panels in the area around 875 N Michigan Ave for private or community use. We've checked for two incentive factors for Illinois Solar for All.
Why we show this solar info
Illinois Solar for All (ISFA) is a state-funded program administered by Elevate Energy to increase the amount of solar panel systems in the state, and especially in low-income areas and environmental justice areas.
The Illinois legislature adopted the Future Energy Jobs Act (FEJA) in 2016 to spur the development of new solar panel systems for personal and community use by buying Renewal Energy Credits from the system owners at a higher rate and upfront rather than after several years. Eligible projects must be installed by approved vendors and have a job training and workforce development program.
Even if you're not proposing a project, you may be able to subscribe to a project in your area to support solar energy development and potentially lower your electricity bill. Your home will not actually be powered by solar energy, but you'll get credit for subscribing to a community solar project.

Green View Index (GVI) statistics
for the area around 875 N Michigan Ave, Chicago, IL
Average: out of 100
Median: out of 100
Higher numbers and darker green are better
The citywide average is 22.88 out of 100. While higher scores refer to generally shadier blocks, the highest score of 100 isn't desirable because it would mean that the street view image taken at a particular point on a block was completely covered by trees or vegetation, and that the camera saw nothing else (like buildings). Most scores in Chicago are between 25 and 37.

Cook County manages grants and assessments of brownfields.
Past floods, current risks, and future projections based on peer-reviewed research from the world’s leading flood modelers. Flood Insurance Rate Maps (FIRM, managed by FEMA) take into account watershed risks, and not flooding from precipitation and impervious surfaces.
Every icon on the PurpleAir map represents a public PurpleAir sensor, and the color indicates the real time PM2.5 reading on the US EPA Air Quality Index scale. The sensors with no outline are registered as outdoor sensors and the sensors with black rings are registered as indoor sensors.
CMAP has developed urban and riverine flood susceptibility indexes (FSI) to identify priority areas across the region for flood mitigation activities. Locations highlighted in the FSI may be more susceptible to riverine or urban flooding than other parts of the region. Streets and buildings within these areas could be more susceptible to overbank flooding, surface ponding, overland flow, water seepage, and basement backups due to the presence of flood-related physical conditions that are correlated with reported flood damages.
