Mercy Lakefront SRO

1244 N. Clybourn Ave., Chicago, Illinois

This installation features eight 520H Aeroturbines mounted horizontally to the roof of this 96-unit single-resident housing development.  The building, designed by Murphy/Jahn Architects, is a fine example of building-integrated wind energy technology.  The geometry and orientation of the building was designed specifically to increase the speed of the wind as it flows over the roof.  Installed in August 2006, the Aeroturbines will begin generating electricity for the building in early 2007.  It will be our first battery-free installation.
