A flood of phone calls to these Senators may be our only chance to make a difference.

– We need you to call the following Senators who make up the Senate Energy and Public Utilities Committee today and urge them to support HB-6 and also keep Rep. Reineke’s Referendum in the bill. Other talking points listed below:

Potential Talking Points:
– Thank them for their time
– Urge Senator to support HB-6
– Tell them why Rep. Reineke’s Referendum is important to you (Ex: Local voice in your community, hold developers accountable, protect future economic development, etc..)
– Explain to them that in Sandusky, Seneca, Crawford, Erie, Huron Counties are set to be inundated with hundreds of industrial wind turbines (250 square miles) and the cumulative affect of these projects will dictate our areas development and we deserve a local say in that process.
– Davis Besse and Perry Nuclear currently produce 90% of Ohio’s zero emission energy
– HB-6 will save Ohioans money by getting rid of expensive R
enewable Energy Portfolio Standards which have only produced poor results
– HB-6 saves 4,300 high paying Ohio jobs
– DB and Perry Nuclear – generate enough zero emission, reliable, base-load energy to power 2,000,000 homes – something that industrial wind turbines will NEVER be able to accomplish
– DB and Perry facilities spend more than $45 million with Ohio-based vendors and suppliers each year. Closing down the plants would reduce our state’s gross domestic product by $510 million annually.
