Wind turbine advocates unveil plans

Rendering of windfarm as seen from Dawes Park

[VIDEO] Backers of the idea of building a windfarm off Evanston’s Lake Michigan shoreline rallied earlier this week at the Firehouse Grill to talk up the concept.

Architect Nate Kipnis presented a rendering of what a row of 10 wind turbines four miles out in the lake might look like from Evanston’s Dawes Park.

And Steve Perkins, a founder of the group Citizens for a Greener Evanston, said the turbines could meet the electricity demands of about one third of the city’s homes.
