''The possibility for wind in northern Ohio is tremendous,'' said Spacek
Spacek, along with company president Glen Ginesi, have their own operational 10 kilowatt turbine at their business in Huron.
The proposed 20-kilowatt tower for Turtle
would be around 60 feet tall with three blades filling out a 16-foot wingspan, according to Spacek
The state currently offers industrial grants that cover up to 50 percent of the installation cost or a maximum of $150 thousand, according to Spacek

OAK HARBOR --At the last Benton-Carroll-Salem School Board of Education work session, Michael Spacek of Engineered Process Systems gave a presentation to the board members on wind power as an alternative energy source to reduce operating costs.
With the rising costs of natural gas, heating oil and electricity, the board is reviewing all options to operate the schools in the most economical means possible.
With assistance through state grants, a wind-powered turbine would have a payback period of approximately seven to 10 years, Spacek
