Stop FirstEnergy’s $300 million bailout
The Ohio State House is about to vote on an outrageous bill (HB 6) that would force taxpayers to bailout FirstEnergy’s uneconomic nuclear and coal power plants. It would also slash the state’s successful renewable and energy-efficiency power plant standards.
The Ohio State House is scheduled to vote on the bill in the next 24 hours. Now is the time to send a strong message to your state representative to vote NO on HB 6.
If the bill passes, Ohio residents and businesses will give away more than $300 million to private corporations to prop up their uncompetitive investments. To make matters worse, the bill reduces Ohio’s clean energy standards which have led to more than $1 billion in savings and thousands of new Ohio jobs.
Please tell your representative that HB 6 is corporate welfare at its worst, distorts the market, and harms our ability to generate our own solar electricity.
