Energy Policy Should Work for Ohio's People

Sep 27, 2022 3:12 PM

After watching how the House Bill 6 scandal revealed the structural flaws in the way State government regulates utilities, it is time for a new approach. The Energy, Jobs, and Justice Act return accountability to Public Utilities Commission of Ohio.

Instead of bailing out the fossil-fuel dinosaurs of the past, this bill will launch one of the largest economic development initiatives in recent history and prioritize clean energy jobs and (finally) direct resources to Ohio communities that have historically faced disinvestment.

Let's change our Energy policy to work for Ohio's people not the GOP's Cronies.

House Bill 429 is a Vital Step for Ohio

As a mother raising my children in Ohio, our backwards energy policies are a cause for anxiety. Ohio families deserve better than pollution and high energy bills. That’s why I’m supporting House Bill 429: Energy Jobs and Justice Act.

If passed, HB429 will save Ohioans money by protecting energy customers against massive utility rate increases that drive up our energy bills. HB429 supports the development of clean energy businesses and job training programs in alternative energy industries that focus on energy waste reduction as well as investing in renewable energy like solar, wind, and geothermal energy.

Supporting these energy alternatives and their infrastructure in Ohio gives Ohioans the opportunity to create an in-demand workforce. Actively transitioning away from fossil fuels and updating our outdated power grid making it reliable, resilient, and secure.

House Bill 429 is a vital step for Ohio in improving our environment, saving Ohioans money, and creating clean energy jobs while working toward the goal of a 100% reduction in statewide greenhouse gas emissions by 2050.

Ohio families deserve a healthy environment, affordable clean energy, and the jobs that energy creates. I urge everyone to take this important step for Ohio and contact your representatives in support of House Bill 429: Energy Jobs and Justice Act.

We Cannot Lag Behind the Rest of the World

As a lifelong Ohioan I have been here through the ups and downs, and it is about time we pick up our feet on environmental policy. Growing up near Akron I now have lifelong asthma due to the horrible air quality here and have first hand experience on how our terrible environmental standards ruin the beauty of the nature around us.

I love Ohio and hate to see such irresponsible energy policy corrupt our environment. Thats why the Energy Jobs and Justice act needs to be passed so that we don't have to let another generation suffer through bad air quality and declining environment. This act will greatly reduce our carbon emissions (50% by 2030) and in addition will open up hundreds of new jobs in the renewable, clean energy sector.

As Ohioans we need to do better. We cannot lag behind the rest of the world and leave future generations with the burden of climate change.
