The Senate Public Utilities committee got its first look this week at Substitute Senate Bill 58, which includes proposed changes to Ohio’s five-year-old energy efficiency and renewable portfolio standards. The requirements were included in Senate Bill 221 of the 127th General Assembly, and mandate that by 2025 electric distribution utilities (EDU) implement energy efficiency programs resulting in a 22 percent usage reduction. Additionally, 25 percent of the electricity sold by each EDU must be generated from alternative energy sources—of that at least 12.5 percent must be generated from renewable energy resources and at least one half of the renewable energy used must be generated at facilities located in Ohio.
