ComEd grant provides electric vehicle to DeKalb High School’s driver’s ed program

DeKalb High School driver’s education program received an electric vehicle and two charging stations, made possible by a $50,000 grant under ComEd’s education program, created in 2019 through the Illinois Climate and Equitable Jobs Act.

This is not the first grant ComEd has provided to the DeKalb area to expand area drivers’ access to electric vehicles and charging stations.  Earlier this year, ComEd joined DeKalb city leaders for a ribbon cutting for a third public charging station located in the city’s downtown district.

Including DeKalb, 14 Illinois schools have participated in ComEd’s electrical vehicle education program.  Illinois school communities with a drivers’ education program interested in applying for the next round of grants for 2023 are invited to apply for a piece of the $250,000 available funding through December 31st.
