The location of the proposed Indeck Niles Energy Center within the Niles Industrial Park enables us to minimize traffic congestion and environmental-impacts associated with building in a city center. Most importantly, a previously unproductive site is being turned into an economic engine that will create jobs, spur economic development and generate revenues for the City of Niles, its residents and the local area.
