Project Icebreaker is the name of a Lake Erie wind energy project that’s been talked about for more than a year. Organizers are moving forward with permitting and planning, and a Cleveland company is leading the charge. 

Great Lakes Today's Elizabeth Miller joined WCPN All Things Considered host Tony Ganzer for an update -- including proposed safeguards for bird, bats and fish.
