ohio solar power
Is northern Ohio a good place to use solar energy and wind?
My family think of using a panel Solar and wind to power our house. Do you think it would work well in northern Ohio?
Katie, I am a meteorologist of the wind resource, so I hope I can give you an idea. For wind, it depends exactly where you live in northern Ohio. If you live in an urban area, it is advisable not to waste your time or money. Northwestern Ohio is quite a good location for the feasibility of wind, and any area right along the lake. Right along the Palestinian border, the wind increases again with an increase in the topography. Areas in the central part of the northern half of Ohio is pretty poor for wind power availability. As for solar energy, it would certainly work, but it would probably not be as profitable as a wind turbine, depending on your exact location. If you are willing to pay money further to adopt solar energy, so go ahead, northern Ohio gets about as much solar energy entering as New York and Boston.
