URL More about Comed-Bronzeville-Demo
ComEd is building a microgrid in Bronzeville and just received federal funding for its next step: solar power and battery storage that could eventually keep the Chicago Police Department headquarters and other key buildings running during a mass power outage. Bronzeville was chosen as a starting point because it houses infrastructure that would be vital to keep running during a mass power outage, like medical centers and police headquarters.
