LaFontaine Chevrolet is “going green” with plans to install a 20-foot wind turbine in the coming months as part of the dealership’s expansion.
Matt LaFontaine, who addressed the Dexter Village Council at their meeting Monday, said the wind turbine would generate power for the lights on his property.
According to LaFontaine, he plans to incorporate the turbine with a permanent artwork display at the front of the dealership in order to create an environmentally friendly and eye-catching entrance to the community of Dexter.
“We want something that would almost be like a trademark for Dexter,” LaFontaine said.
LaFontaine also updated the council on the construction progress of the facility. Despite construction delays due to rain, phase one of the project is still on schedule for completion in April.
“We should have the building enclosed in the next few weeks,” LaFontaine said.
The floors will be poured by the end of January when crews will begin work on the interior. Phase two of the project, which includes the dealership’s service center, will begin construction in late spring.
