Over the Thanksgiving break, I heard this report on Chicago Public Radio’s 848 program:Could Solar Power Re-enrgize Far South Side?Here is the description of this report:
- On the Far South Side of Chicago, a vacant industrial site is being transformed into a state-of-the-art energy project. When it’s done, it will be the biggest urban solar power plant in the country. Backers think it could be the start of a solar boom – pumping new life into a lot of beat-up neighborhoods. But some hard-nosed accounting – both by the company and by the community – will have to come first.
Since Moraine Valley is just down the street (sorta) from Pullman, I wanted to share.
