i’ve driven the stretch of highway between indianapolis and chicago many times in my life – and the views remained almost entirely unchanged until a few years ago.  a new element of scenery appeared on this notoriously flat territory – the wind turbine.  or windmill, as they are traditionally known and called by my kids.  indiana now is home to some of the largest wind farms in the world (and largest in the midwest) – putting indiana on the map for green energy development.
