Ohio now a leader in small wind-power projects, federal report says

COLUMBUS — “While giant wind farms get much of the attention, there is a small but steady market for more-modest wind energy projects at businesses and homes, and Ohio is a leader.

Ohio added 1.54 megawatts of wind energy through these types of projects last year, which ranked seventh in the country, according to a new report from the U.S. Department of Energy.

Including the additions, Ohio has 42.1 megawatts installed since 2003, which ranks sixth in the country. Texas is the leader with 197.7 megawatts.”
