When it comes to energy and policy, the state of Ohio has a long history of leadership. It even held title of energy capital of the nation in the late 1800s.
Ohio is still leading the energy industry. Today, however, the state is making a name for itself in the renewable energy arena. Ohio is making a significant contribution to the national goals for renewable energy production.
In a recent report released by the American Wind Energy Association (AWEA), Ohio is now among the top five states with the fastest growing wind generation capacity. The report shows that Ohio added 313 megawatts (MW) of wind capacity in 2012, outpacing many other traditional sources of energy production installed. And, there's the added potential of expanding another estimated 54,000 MW of wind capacity.
