Did Ohio board certify Icebreaker wind project with enough bird, bat research? Ohio Supreme Court to decide
COLUMBUS, Ohio – An Ohio panel that approves wind farm construction projects approved a certificate to the Icebreaker project on Lake Erie in violation of state law, which requires more detailed bird and bat research than was submitted to the state, an attorney representing two Bratenahl residents told the Ohio Supreme Court on Tuesday.
Mark Tucker, representing residents W. Susan Dempsey and Robert M. Maloney, who oppose the project, argued that the Ohio Supreme Court should toss the Ohio Power Siting Board’s certificate to Icebreaker Windpower Inc., which plans to build a demonstration project of six turbines, generating 20.7 megawatts of electricity, eight to 10 miles off the shore of Cleveland.
