Bill 310 has been signed and renewable energy lovers aren’t taking it well. The bill rescinds the deal it made in 2008 that mandated at least 25 percent of energy come from an alternative source. Those for keeping the turbines spinning say that Ohio won’t be able to meet EPA clean air standards and many of the renewable energy companies will abandon Ohio for other states who probably won’t take back a previous deal (Ohio is the first state to reverse its renewable energy law). The bill isn’t out to squash alternative energy though proponents say—they are simply revisiting the standards that had been nearly unanimously voted on a few years ago.
