  • API for Community Solar Disclosure Forms
    An API has been released for Approved Vendors and Designees who wish to build automated integrations between their systems and the IL Shines Portal. This API is specific to Community Solar Disclosure Forms and includes functionality to create a Disclosure Form, retrieve status and calculated values from a Disclosure Form or it’s associated Project Application, retrieve a PDF copy of the disclosure form for signature, and upload a signed PDF of the disclosure form. Details of API functionality have been shared with members of the API Working Group.
