Why Ending the Renewable Energy Mandate Is Good for Ohio Families and the Economy
Freeing Ohio’s energy market from government mandates will not hurt the state’s economy. First, the renewable energy mandates in SB 221 are a prime example of crony capitalism, which good legislators should beat back at every chance. Second, any conspicuous harm to the jobs and renewable energy investment masks other unseen benefits to the rest of Ohio’ s economy. Third, eliminating the renewable energy standards will help the bottom line for all Ohioans. And finally, eliminating government support for the renewable energy industry will only make renewable energy companies stronger in the long run.
