Finally, in a city as green as Portland, we are stepping it up and putting up the first inner city wind turbines! Seriously, to be on top of that building when the first turbine went up was electric (powered by the wind of course)… 8:00 AM PST the group gathered. Everone from Hoffman construction, to ZGF, to Gerding Edlen… all teeming with excitement to see if we could pull this off. With sheer force and will we hoisted the 50 ft. turbine in the air. By 9:00 we had the first of four towers standing atop Indigo. 9:18 AM the lever is pulled and five minutes later with a slight breeze blowing we were producing our own energy. How’s that for innovation?! Take a look at stills from this morning!
As you drive Burnside… look up!
