CLEVELAND — Work has started in Euclid on what will soon be the largest wind turbine in Northeast Ohio. It is being funded in part by a $350,000 loan from Cuyahoga County government.
Euclid-based Lincoln Electric, a leading manufacturer of arc welding products, will use the loan to help pay for assembly of a 2.5-megawatt wind turbine on its property.
Cuyahoga County Executive Ed FitzGerald requested the loan and the County Council approved it. The loan represents about 6 percent of the financing of a $5.9 million project.
About 75 percent of the cost of the turbine will be covered by Lincoln Electric itself.
