A House panel has recommended changes to a bill that would ultimately change the rates on everyone’s electric bills. The energy bill has the potential to bail out the state’s struggling nuclear plants while repealing Ohio’s green energy standards. 

Republican lawmakers are looking to draw out some of the big changes proposed in the energy bill.

The legislation originally proposed charging residential ratepayers $2.50 on their monthly electric bill to support subsidies, most of which would go to nuclear plants.

Opponents are speaking out against the bill that would prop up two struggling nuclear plants while also tossing out the state’s green energy requirements for utilities. 

The proposed law would create a monthly fee of $2.50 to create clean air credits for carbon-free power generators.

House Speaker Larry Householder (R-Glenford) said ratepayers will end up paying less because the bill gets rid of the alternative energy standards which can end up being more than $4 a month.
