With everyone wanting to be green these days, it is pretty nice to see an auto dealer step up to do their part. Even better when it’s a MINI Dealer!

Bill Jacobs BMW/MINI is a little more than a week away from breaking ground on a brand new facility slated to open in the Fall of 2009 in Naperville, IL.

>As Bill Jacobs BMW/MINI began planning for their new dealership, they decided to start moving in the right direction—continuing to grow as an organization while developing a more eco-friendly retail facility. On September 12th, the company will break ground on a new state-of-the-art BMW/MINI dealership in Naperville, IL. Slated to open in Fall 2009, the facility will take advantage of water, recycling and ventilation technologies to make the dealership more environmentally stable.

State-of-the-art is about right. Everything from lighting to water use to using waste oil for heating is being done in an effort to have a very environmentally friendly facility.

This is a dealer that is doing it right. Get the full details of the new facility at the link below.
