Statement from the Ohio Environmental Council on a Proposed Fix to Ohio’s Wind Setbacks

Columbus, Ohio — The following statement can be attributed in full, or in part, to Trish Demeter, Vice President of Energy Policy at the Ohio Environmental Council:

“I applaud Leader Fred Strahorn for proposing HB 604 — a bill which if passed, would pave the way for full scale wind development in Ohio. For too long, Ohioans have missed out on trends towards wind energy due to unnecessarily large setbacks from property lines.

“Fixing the wind setback issue is critical for further development of wind energy across the state, and bringing Ohio up to speed in the growing clean energy economy.”
