Ohio's clean-energy law is creating jobs, promoting advanced manufacturing and small business, diversifying the state’s power supply, improving public health by reducing pollution, and lowering utility bills. Continued investment encouraged by the law will accelerate all of these advantages. State government shouldn’t even think of weakening it.
The law requires utilities to generate 12.5 percent of their retail electricity sales in the state from renewable sources — such as wind, solar, biomass, and hydropower — by 2025. It includes steps to cut Ohioans’ energy consumption by 22 percent by the same date.
