Windy City gets wind-powered EV charging station

If you find yourself tooling around Highland Park suburbs of Chicago in your plug-in hybrid, you may be able to hook up with a charging station powered by electricity generated from wind farms. The charging station was put up by Campbell. Calif.-based EV-charging station maker Coulomb Technologies and its Midwest distributor, Carbon Day Automotive. The juice comes from a law firm there whose office building has been using Illinois wind farm-generated power through an agreement with MC Squared Energy Services LLC, which arranges for the clean energy to be piped to commercial businesses.

The automotive site Edmunds.com had the original story:
