Cleveland will add another first when North America’s first freshwater wind farm gears up to become fully operational by 2020.
Located eight miles off the coast of downtown Cleveland, the six-turbine Icebreaker Windpower project has earned conditional approval from both the Ohio Power Siting Board and Ohio EPA.
Officials say Icebreaker Windpower – with its $168 million price tag – represents the kind of innovation that will help earn greater Cleveland and the state a reputation for taking action toward clean energy and reducing the risk of climate change. It will also make the region a national hub for wind energy.
