Chicago Building Powered by Wind Credits

Chicago, Illinois [RenewableEnergyAccess.com] The first residential condominium in Chicago to use 100 percent renewable energy to power its 29-floor building is called the Michigan Avenue Tower, with the purchase of renewable energy credits (RECs) from an Iowa wind farm. The cost of purchasing wind credits to association members will be approximately $7 per unit per month, but the association plans to pick up the tab through smart investing of its reserves from its annual budget. The purchase of these credits will help fund the construction of a new wind turbine in Winnebago County, Iowa. Source: Michigan Avenue Tower Condominium Association
