Lake Erie could become home to an offshore wind farm in the next few years.
The proposed Icebreaker Wind project is a six-turbine wind farm that could be built off the coast of Cleveland.
Dave Karpinski is with the Lake Erie Energy Development Corporation.
“For the Cleveland area, it's a chance to be a leader in this new emerging industry in the US,” he said.
Karpinski says the wind farm would create clean energy and jobs with little impact to residents and the environment.
