Forum highlights largest wind farm in Ohio

Thursday, November 15, 2018

8 - 9:30 a.m.

The general manager of the largest electricity-generating wind farm in Ohio will discuss the science of wind energy, wind turbines, and the myths associated with wind power at the Northwest Ohio Ag-Business Breakfast Forum, Thursday, Nov. 15, 2018, from 8 – 9:30 a.m. The event is hosted by the Center for Innovative Food Technology (CIFT) at the Agricultural Incubator Foundation (AIF).

The Blue Creek Wind Farm, a $600 million project of Avangrid Renewables, was completed in 2012 in Paulding and Van Wert counties, generating electricity to more than 76,000 homes.

This forum is part of the Ohio Manufacturing Extension Partnership Pollution Prevention (P2) program, which utilizes the entire network of engineering resources, equipment manufacturers and suppliers at its disposal to provide complete and cost-effective evaluations in power and lighting, water usage, utilities efficiency assessments, water and air discharge and sustainability.

Arrive early, as breakfast and informal networking will start at 8 a.m., with the program to follow.

The Northwest Ohio Ag-Business Breakfast Forum is an educational networking opportunity to provide information on current issues, trends and programs available to the agricultural community and those who support its advancement.
