More Parking Energy Mashups

The latest newsletter from the National Parking Association highlighted yet another example of a parking structure incorporating a "green" energy feature (the last example was a surface lot with solar panels). This time, it's a garage in Chicago with a wind turbine. A description from
Designed by HOK, the wind-powered garage also features rainwater collection, electric car plug-in stations and placards throughout the garage to educate parkers on sustainable living.
We wonder if finding a way to convert political corruption into alternating current might be the ultimate source of renewable energy for the city (and possibly the entire state of Illinois), but wind will have to do for now.
