Bourbonnais, Ill. – Residents of Bourbonnais were recently alerted by village officials that eEquals Solar has been going door-to-door soliciting services for solar energy. Village officials informed residents that the individuals who will be visiting homes from the company have successfully completed background checks required by the Bourbonnais Police Department for a solicitor’s permit.
The solicitors will be carrying a badge complete with a unique identification number issued by the Village of Bourbonnais. They must present this badge upon request. If a solicitor visits your home without a Village of Bourbonnais-issued identification, residents are encouraged to contact the Bourbonnais Police at 815-937-3579. This is in accordance with state law as soliciting in Illinois is legal as long as the applicant follows local government policy.
The Village of Bourbonnais is choosing to inform residents so they are aware of who is in their neighborhood. The fees charged for solicitor permits cover the cost of administration filing and background checks and are not revenue-generating income for the village.
