Rep. Winger Attends ComEd Tour

Recently, ComEd invited local legislators to their facilities to educate them on the local infrastructure and help them gain more insight into the power systems currently being used. ComEd has been working with computerized technology that will make energy more efficient, allow for fewer disruptions in service and in the end save consumer money. The visual presentation to the local leaders mostly concerned the smart grid program: a development in progress that will work to increase energy efficiency.  While some automation devices were demonstrated, the group also viewed a smart street light, smart meters, and upgraded technology currently being used in Bloomingdale and Villa Park.

Representative Christine Winger was among the legislators at the presentation. She was eager to learn more about ComEd’s innovative technology, and the role it plays in her district. Winger was recently named to the Renewable Energy and Sustainability Committee in the 99th General Assembly. “I was excited to see the innovative work ComEd has in place throughout the community, an important step to saving money while conserving energy. Being energy efficient is essential to protecting our environment and our communities.”
