Call Your State Senator Today: Stand Up for Ohio's Clean Energy Future

Ohio's clean energy standards are working. The Buckeye State is now home to more than 1,000 renewable energy projects. Energy efficiency has saved enough electricity to power 30,000 typical Ohio homes.

But legislation now before the Ohio State Senate would effectively roll back the state's choice to require utilities to obtain 12.5 percent of their electricity from renewables and reduce energy demand 22 percent by 2035.

Fossil fuel funded climate skeptic groups, such as the Heartland Institute, are busy peddling disinformation about clean energy in Columbus. But we can turn the table on their misleading attacks by making sure Ohio senators get the facts, just as clean energy supporters have done in more than a dozen states this year.

Call your state senator today in support of clean energy.

Tips on What to Say When You Make Your Call:

• Hi, my name is ______, and I am a constituent from your district. I live in ______.

• I am calling to urge my state senator to oppose Senate Bill 58, which would effectively roll back Ohio's successful renewable energy and energy efficiency standards.

• Renewable energy generation has tripled since the program started in 2008. Energy efficiency programs have saved billions of kilowatt-hours of electricity and millions of dollars for consumers.

• Unfortunately, Senate Bill 58 would halt progress on installing new wind and solar capacity in Ohio, and export clean energy jobs to other states. This bill would also hand over a significant portion of consumers' savings from energy efficiency to utilities.

• That is why I urge Senator ______ to oppose Senate Bill 58 and ensure Ohio continues to harvest the benefits of clean energy.

• Do you know if the senator plans to vote "No" on Senate Bill 58? (Record response below)

• I appreciate your time. Thank you.
