Ohio Governor Ted Strickland announced today that the Lake Erie Energy Development Corp. has reached an agreement with General Electric Co. to purchase five wind turbines for a $100 million demonstration wind project in Lake Erie. Each of the turbines would generate 4 megawatts of electric power, making them the largest in the U.S. The project, which still faces significant regulatory and financing hurdles, is step one of a 10-year plan to build more than 200 turbines generating a total of 1,000 megawatts in Lake Erie by 2020.
