The Windy City is rapidly becoming one of the greenest in the U.S., thanks to its Retrofit Chicago Building Initiative. 14 major commercial buildings have stepped up to the plate to reduce their energy consumption by 20 per cent over the next five years. Through retrofitting and power-saving technologies, the program could potentially reduce greenhouse gas emissions equivalent to taking 30,000 cars off the road, and provide a saving to the companies of $5 million each year. Among the first buildings to commit to energy efficiency were the riverside Sheraton Hotel and AT&T’s downtown office tower.
