Ohio advocates restore state law to encourage solar development

September 23, 2017 Ohio, Policy wins

In 2016, we worked with a broad group of Ohio’s renewable energy advocates and groups to help restore Ohio’s renewable portfolio standard (RPS). More than a dozen of our co-op members testified at the Ohio General Assembly to urge state legislators not to extend the renewable portfolio standard (RPS) freeze. Their testimony encouraged a key legislator to change her vote. This helped Governor Kasich overturn the RPS freeze and pave the way for a stronger solar market in the state.
