ComEd plans to upgrade the electric system that serves Chicago, and that's expected to create more than 2,000 jobs.
Mayor Rahm Emanuel and ComEd President Anne Pramaggiore announced details of the $1.1 billion plan to improve Chicago's electric system infrastructure on Wednesday.
According to Emanuel's office, ComEd will directly create nearly 1,000 jobs. Pramaggiore says the 350 to 400 jobs being added this year will include ComEd employees, contractors, manufacturers and suppliers.
Additionally, ComEd plans to locate a new training center on Chicago's southwest side to ensure that it has enough skilled workers at the program progresses.
The mayor's office says the utility expects Chicago will benefit from hundreds of additional jobs related to the program _ including new tech start-up companies financed through an economic development fund.
