“CEJA paved the way for companies to join the fight against climate change by investing in solar projects just like this one,” said Governor Pritzker.

G&W Electric’s microgrid project began in August of 2021, transforming the roof at the company’s Bolingbrook headquarters into one of North America’s largest rooftop solar systems. With nearly 6000 bi-facial solar panels installed, the grid covers more than 370,000 square feet, the equivalent of nearly eight football fields. Their first call to kick off the project was to ComEd.

“Setting the record for ComEd’s DG rebate program is particularly rewarding to us at G&W Electric as our company was founded by two ComEd Engineers – Harry Gear and Paul Williams,” said John Mueller, chairman and owner of G&W Electric.
