GE backing ComEd grid modernization

GE believes ComEd's efforts are vital to delivering efficient, reliable power to meet the area's growing energy needs

Chicago, October 24, 2011 — GE is supporting ComEd's plans to modernize the electric grid and build the infrastructure to power 21st-century economic growth.

GE believes ComEd's efforts are vital to delivering efficient, reliable power to meet the area's growing energy needs.

With more than half of America's grid infrastructure beyond or approaching its retirement age, grid upgrades are unavoidable, but they also can be opportunity drivers. Recent technology and automation breakthroughs make today's upgrades the foundation for a more secure, clean and reliable energy tomorrow.

Regions that make the right grid choices today will have a competitive advantage well into the future over locations with aging, less reliable energy infrastructure.
