Chicago’s West Pullman neighborhood is home to the largest urban solar installation in the United States. Opened in 2010, Exelon City Solar generates enough energy to power nearly 1,500 households and annually displaces the greenhouse gases of more than 12,500 cars. Join Black Creativity for a special tour of Exelon City Solar to learn about the state-of-the-art engineering and technology that creates cleaner energy and helps green our planet.
