  • The Philadelphia Industrial Development Corporation will announce today its selection of Swiss firm Landis & Gyr AG as the winning bidder to install a “microgrid” to service the Navy Yard, says The Inquirer. Advanced metering technology will allow for the centralized coordination of renewable power sources in the 1,200-acre campus, which requires on average 28 megawatts in energy. The system should be up and running in three to six months.
  • As part of National Painting Week, Sherwin-Williams selects one deserving space in each of its regional branches to unleash company and community volunteers to rehab with a fresh count of paint. In Philadelphia the Bridesburg Boys and Girls Club was chosen for yesterday’s charity effort, which normally would have cost $10,000. “We did all the interior hallways, the front gym, the back gym, and we also did the exterior,” Bridesburg native Anthony DiSalvo tells CBS Philly.
