The American Wind Energy Association (AWEA) issued the following statement on the passage of a bill by the Ohio Legislature that lowers the taxes on wind power that were in place in the state.
“This tax reform will encourage wind energy investment in Ohio, and it will create and protect thousands of manufacturing, construction, operations and maintenance jobs in the state,” said AWEA CEO Denise Bode. “Ohio is now much better positioned to attract wind power investment that will benefit local communities and boost orders for turbines and turbine components.”
Late Thursday night Sub Senate Bill 232 passed the House by a vote of 91-7 and the Senate concurred shortly after passage by a vote of 27-5 with a final reconciled bill headed to Gov. Ted Strickland’s desk before summer recess, according to the grassroots coalition Wind and Solar Jobs for Ohio.
