McCormick Place in downtown Chicago normally hosts hundreds of conventions and events each year. Since the pandemic caused the cancellation of many of those events, the venue has been transformed into an alternate care facility for COVID-19 patients.

Among many other duties, ComEd proactively inspected the equipment that provides power to McCormick Place. “We’re committed to maintaining high reliability for all of our customers, but sites of critical public significance demand an even higher level of care,” said
