Ohio House Delays Vote on Anti-Renewables Bill

SOLARTODAY

The Ohio House, which was scheduled to vote on SB 310 on Wednesday, May 21, has postponed action until Tuesday, May 27.

The bill would stall phase-in of the state’s renewable electricity and efficiency standards. Lobbying against the bill, by renewable energy advocates, is said to have motivated the vote delay.

Green Energy Ohio, the Ohio chapter of the American Solar Energy Society, urges Ohio residents to phone their Ohio House representative (find your representative at http://www.ohiohouse.gov/index), and to call Governor Kasich’s office at 614-466-3558.
