Although it’s by no means yet a reality, last week New York Power Authority President and CEO announced steps are being taken to examine the viability of wind farms off the shores of Lake Erie and Lake Ontario. By the end of the month, technical specifications will be more clear and the people involved will have a better idea of whether or not the project can or should go through. New York’s Governor Paterson has said he wants New York to receive 45% of its electricity through renewable sources by 2015, and if the Great Lakes Offshore Wind Project goes through, the state will be fast on its way to accomplishing that goal with the minimum size of the project being 120 megawatts. Although it seems like a great idea, I’m sure there will be lots of people speaking out against this. Would you like to see a wind farm off the shores of the great lakes?
