To help increase business opportunities for local, diverse service providers and entrepreneurs across northern Illinois, ComEd announced the launch of the Market Development Initiative (MDI). This initiative is designed to provide individuals – both new to and experienced in the energy-efficiency industry – with skills and tools that can help them compete for job opportunities in this fast-growing sector.
