In 2011, our report, Ohio's Clean Energy Report Card, showcased the remarkable progress Ohio is making with renewable energy. But our report also showed how each utility is doing on their goals, helping to shape the conversation about clean energy in Ohio.
Last month's Shining Cities report detailed how cities are good for solar and solar is good for cities. We've seen some impressive strides across the nation to momentously expand our solar capabilities. But we're not where we need to be yet. To obtain a clean energy future your cities and towns need to do even more. Here's how to push them in the right direction!
As a result of global warming, young Americans today are growing up in a different climate than their parents and grandparents experienced. It is warmer than it used to be. Storms pack more of a punch. Rising seas increasingly flood low-lying land. Large wildfires have grown bigger, more frequent and more expensive to control. People are noticing changes in their own backyards, no matter where they live.

Six million metric tons of carbon pollution could be eliminated in Ohio if wind power continues its recent growth trajectory, according to a new analysis by Environment Ohio. The analysis comes just as Congress considers whether to renew tax credits critical to wind development.
American wind power already produced enough energy in 2013 to power 15 million homes. Continued, rapid development of wind energy would allow the renewable resource to supply 30 percent of the nation’s electricity by 2030, providing more than enough carbon reductions to meet the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s proposed Clean Power Plan.
