21MW Icebreaker Wind is a unique wind energy project - the first offshore wind facility in the Great Lakes, the first freshwater wind farm in North America, and only the second offshore wind project in the entire U.S. Very simply, it offers Ohio the opportunity to become a national leader in this nascent industry.
The nation’s only freshwater array will be installed about 13km from shore in shallow Ohio-owned waters in Lake Erie facing the city of Cleveland, with construction expected to start in 2021 and commercial operation in 2022.
The $126m pilot — which has won federal approvals and is in the final state permitting stages — will act as a catalyst for future commercial-scale projects in the Great Lakes and to make Ohio and the surrounding region an offshore wind supply-chain hub.
Icebreaker Wind alone will create over 500 jobs and $85 million in economic impact during construction and an additional economic impact of $168 million over the life of the project in Northeast Ohio.
