Do the great lakes have any wind farms on them?

    Not yet.  Though much research has gone into assessing the feasibility of offshore wind farms on the Great Lakes, and proponents are optimistic about the possibility, even those in favor of offshore wind farms admit that it will likely be years before any are actually established.  The primary reason that wind farms are not being built at the moment is that they require huge financial investments, and nobody is able or willing to foot the bill.  However, as research continues and technology improves, many are hopeful that the cost will be lowered sufficiently in the next few years for offshore wind farms to be seriously considered.  When that happens, the Great Lakes will likely be a prime spot for some of the first offshore wind farms.
