Building and roof solar system evolved from League's Workforce Development program

On Wednesday, April 27, the Chicago Urban League celebrated the completion of a 210kW solar panel installation project with a ribbon-cutting ceremony.

This project includes solar panels on the roof of the building at 4510 S. Michigan Avenue and a solar carport that will be the largest in the city of Chicago.

The solar carport, which covers most of the League’s rear parking lot, changes the landscape at the intersection of 45th Street and Wabash Avenue. It will stand as a visible testimony to the Chicago Urban League’s commitment to preparing individuals from the community to participate in the renewable energy job market.

The project evolved from the League’s Workforce Development Center 6 years ago.

National Urban League President and CEO Marc H. Morial joined Chicago Urban League CEO Karen Freeman-Wilson for the ribbon cutting.
