    The Great Winds On The Great Lakes

    Wind energy sets sail on the Great Lakes

    Andy Belaskovitz, January 18, 2018 (Green Biz)

    “…[After eight years of up and down progress, the Lake Erie Energy Development Corp. (LEEDCo) public–private partnership is about to succeed as, eight] miles north of Cleveland in Lake Erie, the Icebreaker Wind project is poised to become the first offshore wind project in the Great Lakes. The project, lured by LEEDCo, is owned by Icebreaker Wind Power through the Norway-based investor Fred. Olsen Renewables. Pending federal and state approval, developers anticipate construction will begin in 2020 on the six-turbine, 20.7 MW project…Some renewable energy advocates hope Icebreaker will catalyze further Great Lakes offshore wind development by settling economic, environmental and regulatory concerns. Skeptics fear it could be a one-off demonstration that is unlikely to be scaled up…[And opponents] with concerns about aesthetics, renewable energy or potential impacts on wildlife worry it will lead to a flood of projects throughout the region…However it ends up, the project could play a big part in whether the Great Lakes become a focal point for offshore wind in the future…Economics remains the principal barrier to offshore wind in the U.S. However, DOE reports ‘increased confidence’ due to declining costs globally and stronger policy commitments…” click here for more
