Financial Assistance to Ohio for Lincoln Electric's Wind Energy Project
Lincoln Electric proposes to construct and operate a 2.5 MW single turbine wind energy project at Lincoln Electric’s World Headquarters facility located at 22800 Saint Clair Avenue, Euclid, Ohio. The wind turbine would provide 2.5 MW of renewable energy to fulfill up to ten percent (10%) of the Lincoln Electric Headquarters’ annual electricity demand and help to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Ohio proposes to provide the project a $1.0 million grant, which would come from a formula grant that Ohio received from DOE pursuant to the Department’s State Energy Program. This EA analyzes the potential environmental impacts of the proposed construction and operation of the Lincoln Electric Wind Energy project and the alternative of not implementing this project.
