If you’re from the area, next time you are driving down Milwaukee Ave, take a look at our new wind turbine, developed by Windspire, right outside our building. Constructed and erected on October 28th, the new 30 foot, vertical turbine is designed to create clean, renewable energy for our facility.
Windspire has been working with companies, schools and even government locations to provide their specially designed wind turbines as an option for cleaner energy.
“We wanted something that would not only work, but would work in Chicago weather” said Bob Taylor, Abt’s Director of Operations. Chicago’s known as the Windy City, and its average wind speed of about 12 mph is perfect for the operation of the turbine.
This is just another part of Abt’s long line of environmentally friendly movements that have been established inside and outside the store. You can find more about Abt’s environmental efforts on our Going Green page.
