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.
