Wind Wheels look like Art Objects

In January 2014, the Florida Green Building Coalition (FGBC) certified the City of Fort Lauderdale as a Florida Green Local Government. That means that the city has demonstrated its leadership in environmental protection and in using sustainable energy resources. One of the City project is the power pumps for electric cars in the Mills Pond Park.
The four wind wheels, which are visible from the I-95 look like art objects. However, they are real wind wheels and produce power for car batteries. The wind wheels and car power pumps are already installed. However, they are not yet operating. As soon as the stations are ready and open to the public these station should power several cars at the same time and the additional power will go into the power grid.

As soon as these pumps are running, you can go and enjoy the recreation areas in the park and at the same time fuel your car batteries. All that without the ugly smell of a gas station and the air pollution afterwards.

The Florida Green Building Coalition (FGBC) is a nonprofit Florida Corporation. It mission is to lead and promote sustainability with environmental, economic and social benefits to communities.

What a great idea and Florida is the perfect place with its sunshine and wind power for this mission.
