Speaking at this week's energy summit at Ohio State University, Ohio Gov. John Kasich is promising a comprehensive review of state energy policy. The summit, which concludes today, has brought together utilities, environmentalists, and officials from the oil and gas, coal, and advanced energy industries.
While Kasich voiced support of renewable energy, he left the door open to potential changes to the state's renewable portfolio standard, which requires utilities to provide 25 percent of their energy generation from renewable and advanced energy sources by 2025. News reports indicate that Kasich's review of energy policy is likely to take several months, with specific policy proposals emerging early next year.
