Proposed Ohio Wind Farms

Revised 31 Jan 2017

If all goes according to plan, Ohio will build eight more wind farms in the next five years. According to Electric Power Monthly for Jan. 2017 we now have 433 MW. The planned farms will almost quintuple that number giving wind about one-eighth of Ohio’s electricity.
