"In Chicago Neighborhood, Guarded Optimism About Microgrid"

"The Bronzeville neighborhood of Chicago became the city’s African American intellectual, artistic and economic mecca as segregationist policies kept black people out of other areas.

Local leaders hope to build on that legacy with the microgrid that ComEd is proposing for the neighborhood.

ComEd says the project would provide resiliency and reliable electricity to Bronzeville, since microgrids, supported by their own electricity sources, disconnect from the larger grid when there are outages on the system."
