Urban wind turbines

Recommended Posts

Recently I was on the roof of the Pepsico regional headquarters in Chicago. The building got its LEED certification in part because of the solar panels and wind turbines on the roof. It was my first time seeing one of these up close, so I took a video of it for one of HAIF's sister sites, the Chicago Architecture Blog. I thought the video might be of interest to HAIFers because of the larger scale versions of these going up on Discovery Tower.

The banging noise you hear in the video isn't the turbines, it's nearby construction.

Not sure what you're talking about.

There isn't a video, there aren't any pictures that look relevant to the topic of the thread as you described it, and there isn't the word "wind" or "turbine" in text that is getting picked up by my Ctrl-F search.

Can you provide a better link?

Duh you. Obviously the majority of us aren't seeing a photo or video in post one.


I'd been having problems with IE 6 at work and HAIF for a week or so and could see the picture. I just got home and I see what you're talking about and I've got Firefox 3.0.12, and an update was applied today.

Duh me, because I could see the picture and still went to the Chicago site and could not find it. :blush:
