CHICAGO (WLS) -- Mayor Rahm Emanuel joined labor, environmental, and business leaders in a push to bring thousands of green jobs to Chicago.

They call it a framework that will generate more than $400 million a year in new investment in energy efficiency and renewable energy.

This was announced at Testa Produce, a wholesale distributor of fruits and vegetables. It is home to the first freestanding wind turbine in the city and 180 solar panels.
