Great Lakes May be Home to Offshore Wind

Thursday, February 07, 2008
According to reports, the waters of the Great Lakes, near the shores of Canada, may soon be home to offshore wind power. The Province of Ontario's Ministry of Natural Resources has lifted a deferral on applications to produce offshore wind power in the province's waters. This decision came after the province took steps over the past year to obtain the best available information on which to base decisions regarding offshore projects on. These steps have included partnering with the U.S. National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) to evaluate offshore wind potential in the Great Lakes, analyzing lakes Erie, Huron and Ontario, including depth and wind speed and looking at the impact any offshore projects would have on wildlife.
