The State of Ohio passed a bill to pay a nuclear power plant $150 million/year to keep operating. It was immediately signed by the Governor.
Yes, you read that right.
A new tax, $0.85/month on all residential customers from 2021 – 2027 is expected to generate $170 million/year.
In addition, this new law will drop the renewable requirements for utilities from 12.5% to 8.5% by 2026. But, after 2026 there is no further requirement. Yep- back to free markets.
This action is in sharp contrast to surrounding states that increased the renewable requirements for energy delivered to their residents.
Ohio chose to bail out a failing power plant at the expense of its future in renewable power.
