Zoo to monitor wind in energy-feasibility test  

The Toledo Zoo hopes to harvest the breeze.

In conjunction with the non-profit Green Energy Ohio, the zoo will monitor wind in three directions from atop the Lucas County EMS tower at South Detroit and Glendale avenues, near the zoo.

Data from this test should reveal whether wind power is worth the investment for the zoo, a news release said.

Green consciousness at the zoo has risen considerably since Executive Director Anne Baker arrived almost two years ago. Construction plans for zoo projects, such as the all-season Children’s Zone, include a green component.

“The steps we take now to find renewable energy will be extremely beneficial in the long run,” Ms. Baker said. “If wind power turns out to be a cost-effective way to generate energy for the zoo, then we feel that it is imperative to pursue it.”

Bill Spratley, executive director of Green Energy Ohio, said that regardless of the outcome of these tests, “we hope this will further raise consciousness about wind power as a sustainable energy source.”
