"Cleveland's offshore wind project is a prime example of the positive role the public sector can play in promoting a more equitable and
sustainable economy. By promising to procure portions of the electricity produced by the Lake Erie Wind Farm, the City of Cleveland, Cuyahoga County
and Cleveland Public Power are all playing a critical role in launching a major clean energy project that will create good local construction and maintenance
jobs, promote development of the wind energy manufacturing supply chain in the region, and reduce the region's dependence on polluting fossil fuels
imported from elsewhere."
