Legal battles over the Ohio energy law that starts providing subsidies to the state’s two nuclear power plants in 2021, may continue, Kallanish Energy learns. The Ohio Supreme Court voted 4-0 to hear the case filed by Ohioans Against Corporate Bailouts (OACB). Three justices recused themselves from the case, citing political campaign conflicts, Energy Central News reported. OACB maintains it was denied a full 90 days to gather signatures for a referendum. They want to overturn the law that subsidizes Ohio’s two nuclear power plants owned by FirstEnergy Solutions and two coal-fired plants owned by Ohio Valley Electric Corp. The law also shrinks and eventually eliminates requirements that utilities get a percentage of their power from renewable energy sources and scraps utilities’ state-mandated energy efficiency programs.
