The Ohio Senate Committee on Public Utilities received amendments to a bill that critics say would gut the state's renewable energy standard. As an alternative, the wind industry recommended that the state clarify that out-of-state renewable electricity must be "deliverable" to Ohio and that the definition of eligible renewable resource remain unchanged. The wind energy industry also suggested that a phase-out period or an adjustment to the standard's in-state requirement would be preferable to an outright abolition.
