Fred Olson Company and LEEDCo have both said publicly that the long term plan is 1,450 wind turbines:
a. Quote: “We are definitely going forward — all system are go,” said Dave Karpinski, vice-president of operations for a consortium behind the project, the Lake Erie Energy Development Corp. (LEEDCo). “Our vision is 5,000 megawatts over the next 10 to 15 years,” he said.
Doing the math for how much each giant wind turbine can generate, that would require installing about 1,450 giant wind turbines in lake Erie.
b. -In the Cleveland City Club forum video of April 28, 2017 Lorry Wagner, head of LEEDCo talks about wanting to harness 10% of the wind capacity on the Ohio waters of Lake Erie. That would equate to thousands of Wind Turbines. LEEDCo has said in the filing of their 2015 IRS 990 filing that this was the start of the buildup of wind offshore wind turbine development in Lake Erie.
c. The Cleveland Convention Center on 8/23/13. — Congresswoman Marcy Kaptur said that Lake Erie is the Saudi Arabia of Wind. At the time they were proposing to use a Siemens 3.0 MW wind turbine. So, again – simple math if you want 5,000 megawatts they’ll need way more than 6 giant wind turbines, they will have to install thousands of giant wind turbines.
d. Here is a copy of a promotional flyer from Fred Olson Company and LEEDCo: clearly demonstrating that the true nature of the giant wind turbine project is NOT six giant wind turbines, but more than a thousand giant wind wind turbines:
