ComEd Installs Off-Grid Streetlights at Two South Side Schools

ComEd has completed the installation of new renewable, off-grid streetlights at two Chicago Public Schools on Chicago’s South Side. Five streetlights were installed at Walter H. Dyett High School for the Arts in Washington Park, and two streetlights were installed at Perspectives Math and Science Academy Project in Bronzeville. 

“Our commitment to the communities we serve goes beyond delivering clean, reliable and affordable power to families and businesses,” said ComEd CEO Gil C. Quiniones. “This partnership with Chicago Public Schools and local stakeholders is an example of our dedication to community collaboration to identify and execute solutions to local issues. 

“In addition to public safety benefits, students will enjoy a new STEM curriculum designed around the new technology right outside their schools,” he continued. ComEd will work with the administrations at Dyett and Perspectives schools to develop a STEM curriculum based on the technology and operations of the streetlights
