Exelon City Solar
In 2009, Exelon Corporation contracted SunPower Corporation to build a solar power plant on a 41-acre brownfield in Chicago's West Pullman neighborhood. Environmental Design International inc. (EDI) played a significant engineering role providing site civil engineering, environmental, and survey services for Exelon City Solar, a 10-megawatt solar power plant. With an aggressive construction schedule and a site plagued with challenges, EDI and the design team provided an innovative, low-impact site design, along with crucial environmental expertise that aided in this high-profile project's success. The plant, which came on line in March 2010, is expected to produce enough electricity to power an estimated 1,500 homes annually.
