The Lake Erie Energy Development Corporation (LEEDCo) suffered a setback last week when it "failed to win a $47 million federal grant that would have jumpstarted the long-running" Icebreaker project, Crain's Cleveland Business reports. The offshore wind development project would install nine three-megawatt wind turbines seven miles off the coast of Cleveland in Lake Erie (See our March 25, 2014, blog post for more information). Although it did not secure the major grant, the "U.S. Department of Energy has offered [LEEDCo] a smaller amount of funding that would allow the nonprofit to continue working on the design of the foundation that the turbines would use, the wind farm's electrical system and data collection," the article said. That award will be "at least $3 million and possibly up to $5 million," reports. For more, read the full Crain's Cleveland Business and WKYC stories.
