Advanced Energy Portfolio Standard
In June 2008, the City of Cleveland adopted a citywide Advanced Energy Portfolio Standard (AEPS). The standard ensures that 15% of Cleveland Public Power’s energy comes from advanced or renewable sources by 2015, 20% by 2020, and 25% by 2025. The City also actively lobbied for the statewide AEPS that was passed in 2008.
Wind Energy Regulations
In 2009, The City updated the zoning code regulations to ensure that wind energy facilities are developed and maintained to maximize utilization of Cleveland’s wind energy resources while protecting public health, safety and welfare.
