2017 year in review

We began 2017 celebrating the reinstatement of Ohio’s modest renewable energy and energy efficiency standards after a two-year freeze, an attempt to extend the freeze and an ultimate veto of the freeze extension by Governor Kasich. Our joy and relief evaporated by March however, when House Bill 114 was introduced. HB 114 proved even worse than the freeze bill, as it proposed making utility investments in efficiency and renewable energy voluntary, essentially gutting the standards while avoiding the political fallout of an outright repeal.
