COMED AWARDS FEJA GRANTEES
ComEd has provided a total of $7 million to seven grant recipients who have been selected to develop and administer future energy jobs training programs.
The funding will enable APAC, ASPIRA, Chatham Business Association, Chicago Urban League, HACIA, National Latino Education Institute (NLEI) and the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW) 134 to implement diverse training programs that will help prepare people from local Illinois communities for future energy jobs in areas like solar and energy efficiency.
FUTURE ENERGY JOBS BILL ENACTED
The Future Energy Jobs Bill that will maintain Illinois' competitive electric rates, preserve and create thousands of jobs and expand clean energy at a cost substantially below 25 cents per month for the average ComEd residential customer.
In addition to lowering costs, the legislation will jumpstart renewable energy development, expand aid and job training to low-income residents and support high-paying jobs.
