In keeping with its attempt to shift its focus to providing power management and reliability technology, Electric City Corp., Elk Grove, Ill., recently secured a contract with the Chicago Housing Authority (CHA) to supply backup power electric switchgear and generators to various senior housing sites. The $1.1 million project is expected to be completed in six months.

According to John Mitola, Electric City CEO, the CHA project is part of the company’s current move toward distributed generation projects. “This is just one of the several on-site power and controls projects that we have been working on over the past several months,” he said.
