Ailey Solar started as part of the Chicago Solar program in 2012, of which we installed over 100 photo voltaic installations primarily in Oak Park and Chicago. We installed the future every day by making quality, safe solar installations affordable. A chief component of Ailey solar is to provide consultations and estimates that demonstrate how simple and affordable solar can be for your residential or commercial property.

Residential New Construction Program is an energy-efficiency program jointly offered by Nicor Gas and ComEd. The program works with eligible builders to construct single family homes that are more energy efficient than homes merely built to code.
There are also lasting benefits to the homeowner. Homes certified through our program are:
Plus, our third-party verification ensures that the home is built using strict energy-efficiency practices and work is completed properly. This means reduced energy bills for the life of the home.
How it works
Program builders partner with an accredited building performance consultant that completes a minimum of two site inspections. The first inspection is conducted before the drywall is installed and the final inspection is conducted when the home is complete and ready to occupy. During this inspection the consultant will conduct the required performance testing and will verify that work meets all energy-efficiency requirements of the program.
After site verifications are complete the consultant submits the required paperwork. Once paperwork is processed and the project is verified complete, the homeowner will receive a certification portfolio that includes estimated energy savings and builders receive an incentive for meeting program requirements.

A family tradition that began in 1947, in the garage of cabinetmaker Tom Hammer, has evolved into one of the largest custom cabinet manufacturers in the U.S. To this day, Crystal Cabinet Works is still owned and operated by the Hammer family, with Jeff Hammer, along with his daughters, continuing the tradition of fine custom cabinet making. Every cabinet is still built one at a time, just for you. From shaping each piece of moulding, to routing the cabinet doors, and assembling each box, our strength lies in our extended family of true craftsman located in central Minnesota. We take great pride in our knowledgeable, hard-working people, who have learned the cabinetmaking trade over several decades and continue to pass the craft on to future generations. The garage has gotten a lot bigger, but our approach to the work hasn’t changed a bit.
