Two Bratenahl residents are scheduled to argue before the Ohio Supreme Court next week that a state board should not have granted a certificate that will allow construction of the Icebreaker wind project on Lake Erie.
On Dec. 7, the Ohio Supreme Court will hear an appeal from W. Susan Dempsey and Robert M. Maloney against the Ohio Power Siting Board, the panel that reviews wind generation proposals and, when it deems appropriate under state law, provides certificates of environmental compatibility and public need, which are necessary for construction to begin. Icebreaker, if built, would be the first freshwater wind project in North America. It’s proposed as a demonstration project of six wind turbines, generating 20.7 megawatts of electricity.
