AEP Ohio has announced a commitment to eventually double wind and solar generation in Ohio. Supporters say the plan sends a signal around the country to clean energy companies.

AEP Ohio’s proposal is the next step in their plan to move away from coal power.

Neil Waggoner is with the Sierra Club, which agreed to support the plan in 2015. Waggoner says AEP’s project and the state’s renewable energy standards are a signal to solar and wind developers.

Lake Erie Energy Development Corporation-or LEEDCo—wants to erect six wind turbines in the lake, ten miles offshore. The turbines would generate enough electricity to power 7,000 homes.
