The Windy City area is capitalizing on its most famous attribute with a new wind-powered electric vehicle charging station. Located in Highland Park, 30 miles outside of the city, the charging station uses electricity generated by Illinois wind farms for law firm Emalfarb Swan & Bain.
The charging station is the second in the country and the first in the continental U.S. to be powered by wind. The other station is located in Maui, Hawaii.
The charge port was installed by Carbon Day Automotive, a distributor of the EV-charging leader Coulomb Technologies. Carbon Day has also created a Solar Charge-Port that not only juices up EVs, but also collects, filters and recycles storm water through a Grey water filtration system for irrigation use.
