Bowling Green is home to Ohio’s first utility-sized wind farm. There are four turbines that are 257 feet tall. These turbines are as tall as a 30-story building and generate up to 7.2 megawatts of power — enough to supply electricity for approximately 2,500 residential customers. Located about six miles from the city, the turbines can be seen for miles and have become a local attraction.
Debt on the wind turbine project was paid in full in 2015. This is a tremendous accomplishment as the debt was paid off several years early and the project is now one of the City’s lowest energy resources.
