Ohio Pushes Wind Power on Lake Erie
Listen to the Story
Ohio officials are pushing plans to get Lake Erie, the shallowest of the Great Lakes, at the forefront of offshore wind power development.
Gov. Ted Strickland and U.S. Sen. Sherrod Brown joined industry and education leaders Monday in Cleveland and outlined tax-cut and regulatory measures to jump-start wind projects.
Strickland says a tax cut now before state lawmakers would make Ohio competitive in developing wind power. Brown is backing legislation to expand federal tax incentives for offshore wind development.
Lake Erie’s comparative lack of depth is seen as an advantage for erecting towers to produce wind power.
