Lake Erie to Become the United State’s First Fresh-Water Wind Farm
As with all wind farm projects in the US, such as the Cape Wind scheme, the proposed Great Lakes wind farm has been applauded by environmentalist groups in favor of renewable energy, but has angered local residents. Many have said that the turbines are an eyesore and are overly noisy when operating in strong winds.
When finished, Cape Wind will be situated five miles of the Massachusetts coast and will be capable of producing enough electricity to power 400,000 houses. However the project has been criticized for potentially damaging the tourism industry in the area and around Nantucket while decreasing property value and causing possible damage to “birds, whales, fishing, aviation, and historic sites.”
