A new pilot project from Illinois’ largest utility is bringing energy storage out from behind the substation and into the neighborhood. Last month, ComEd deployed a 25-kilowatt-hour, lithium-ion battery in Beecher, Ill., about 40 miles south of Chicago. In the event of a power outage, the battery can supply about an hour of backup power to three houses selected for the project.
