Green technology experts in Ohio

Ohio Senate Public Utilities committeeIntroduced by Sen. Kris Jordan (R-Ostrander) early last year, SB 34 received its second consideration before the Ohio Senate Public Utilities Committee.

The bill, if enacted, would repeal the state’s Renewable and Advanced Energy Portfolio Standard (RAEPS), which requires “that electric distribution utilities and electric services companies provide 25% of their retail power supplies from advanced and renewable energy resources by 2025.”

During the hearing, Kevon Martis, director of the Interstate Informed Citizens Coalition — a bipartisan renewable-energy citizens advocacy group — garnered laughs from the committee by concluding that “mandating and subsidizing wind energy is like hiring one of my teenage sons to work in my construction business, ” as “they have a highly inflated opinion of their relative contribution to the task at hand” but keep “you up all night with incessant and annoying noise that you are absolutely powerless to stop.”

Responding to questioning from Sen. Shannon Jones (R-Springboro) regarding the potential economic impact of ending renewable energy subsidies, Martis explained that “those industries need to mature, ” as opposed to continuing to remain dependent on public funding.

Sen. John Eklund (R-Munson Township) also wondered aloud about the effect that removing government subsidies may have on the balance of green-energy technology research relative to private-sector research into other energy sources, comparing it to an inventor wondering why he’d want to “invent the telephone when one of these gizmos is just around the corner.”

State Senator Kris Jordan (R-Ostrander)Committee chairman Sen. Bill Seitz (R-Cincinnati) joked that the difference between renewable energy and other technological innovations was that other technologies were “not some Stalinist government mandating ‘you will buy my stuff.’”

In an interview with Media Trackers, Sen. Jordan expressed his belief that SB 34 was gaining traction in the legislature.

“My bill is much more simple, and it just lets customers pick the winners and losers in our economy, as opposed to a bunch of know-it-all politicians, ” he said, adding, “You rip the Band-Aid off, you stop the problem, which is that these renewables necessarily drive the cost up for all consumers.”

At the time SB 34 was introduced, Seitz added that he was not necessarily opposed to repealing the mandates, “if it’s going to become significantly more costly for ‘Bob and Betty Buckeye’ to pay for the privilege of being green.”

After months of negotiations between Sen. Seitz and environmentalist groups over reforming the RAEPS mandate finally broke down in December, Seitz announced that he would instead pursue the repeal of “the current envirosocialist mandates, ” noting that the “inordinate difficulty” of finding points of compromise with environmentalist organizations forced him to opt instead to “simply end the mandates now.”
