The Illinois Commerce Commission approved Commonwealth Edison’s Bronzeville microgrid project earlier this month, setting the stage for expanded microgrid applications — including multiple customers and greater use of clean energy resources. The $25 million Bronzeville project will integrate with a nearby independently-built microgrid at the Illinois Institute of Technology, which has been a central part of ComEd’s plans for integrating distributed energy resources across its territory. “By connecting with the IIT microgrid, we’ll learn how to integrate microgrids with renewable energy resources and how to maximize the value of the interaction between two microgrids,” said Joe Svachula, vice president of engineering and smart grid technology at ComEd. “It’s an important step forward in our effort to develop a more secure, resilient and reliable distribution system in the future.” See  here and here for more news about microgrids, this time in California.
