Columbus Mayor Michael B. Coleman is asking lawmakers to oppose a plan that would revise the state’s “green” energy standards.
In a letter sent this week, the mayor says the proposal “is harmful to consumers” and would hurt the clean-energy economy and the environment.
His letter addresses Senate Bill 310, which would stop annual increases in benchmarks for renewable energy and energy efficiency. The standards would freeze at 2014 levels, canceling the next 11 years worth of increases.May 14, 2014 1:07 pm at 1:07 pm #1016210June 8, 2014 10:13 am at 10:13 am #1022884
