Perfect Power at the Illinois Institute of Technology
The Galvin Electricity Initiative, Illinois Institute of Technology and the Department of Energy partnered to design the country’s first Perfect Power System. As one of the first projects to receive funding from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA), Perfect Power at IIT is setting an example for smart grid projects throughout the country. Launched in 2006, this smart microgrid-based system is a ground-breaking approach to electricity distribution and management, creating a power system that will not fail the end-user.
