Six Wind Turbines Planned in Lake Erie

There’s a plan to erect a half dozen giant wind turbines in Lake Erie, off the coast of Cleveland and Erie County is joining the Public Private Partnership working to make that happen.

LEEDCo and Erie County now joins other lakefront municipalities in northeastern Ohio that endorse the plan.

According to local environmental groups, wind energy creates opportunities not just to access clean energy, but to also be on the forefront of the economic opportunities offshore wind development can bring our region.

The project in Cleveland is called the Icebreaker Offshore Wind Project and could be the first to put wind turbines in the Great Lakes.
