COLUMBUS – This week, a bill that would allow Ohio residents access to the benefits of community solar power continued to advance through the state House. House Bill 450, which would provide for 2,000 megawatts of community solar to be installed across the state, had an initial committee hearing on Wednesday.
HB 450 was introduced last October by Representatives Baldridge (R-Winchester) and Lanese (R- Grove City). Two hearings were held at the end of the year that led to an interested parties meeting with the bill authors. Action was taken this week at a third hearing before the House Public Utilities committee to adopt a substitute to reflect the outcome of the working group.
