Turbines on Lake Erie

Progress is still being made in making Cleveland the home of the first freshwater wind farm anywhere in the world.

The Cleveland Plan Dealer on Friday, June 18, 2010, wrote an article highlighting the partnership established with GE. The PD even posted a copy of the memorandum of understanding, minus the "trade secrets".

The Great Lakes Energy Institute at Case Western Reserve University has been a partner on much of the previous and ongoing research.

Love to be supportive of Case my son just graduated but depending on the definition of "fresh water" wind farm Buffalo may have Cleveland beat. http://www.buffalowaterfront.com/windturbinespics.php

The Buffalo project is placed on land so it cannot be considered a freshwater wind farm. The Cleveland turbines are being placed in the lake which makes it unique.
