Outgoing Head of Ohio PUC Urges Kasich To Give Clean Energy Requirments Time

We certainly hope that Governor-Elect Kasich will heed the advice of the outgoing Chairman of the Ohio Public Utilities Commission with respect to the state's clean energy standard.  Accroding to a Bloomberg report:

Alan Schriber, set to retire as chairman of the Public Utilities Commission of Ohio, said a requirement that utilities produce 25 percent of their electricity from solar, wind and other clean energy sources by 2025 deserves time to be tested before Kasich makes any changes to the mandates.

During the 2010 governor's race, Kasich said he might seek repeal of the advanced energy thresholds laid out in a sweeping energy bill pushed by Gov. Ted Strickland if they prove to be driving up energy costs.

"We haven't given it a good chance yet. I'd say give it time," Schriber said in an interview with The Associated Press. "There's no reason to rush into it. There's certainly a lot of other things that are more compelling in this state to take care of."
