Yesterday, Green Energy Ohio released A Wind Resource Assessment for Near-Shore Lake Erie (an 89 page PDF, 9.8 MB), the results of a two year study of the winds over Lake Erie. In 2005, a wind monitoring system was installed at Cleveland's water intake crib, 3.5miles off the shore of downtown
Cleveland. The analysis found an average wind speed of 16.4 mph, the strongest ever measured in Ohio. Cuyahoga County Economic Development Director Paul Oyaski says the report "lays the foundation" for the upcoming 13-month wind turbine feasibility study
