Wind power rulemaking

In May 2016, the OPSB initiated a new rulemaking docket in case number 16-1109-GE-BRO for the purpose of issuing for formal comment proposed revisions to Ohio Administrative Code 4906-4-08. In a finding and order dated May 4, 2017, the OPSB issued final rules in amended Ohio Administrative Code 4906-4-08 and newly proposed 4906-4-09. The final rules will be reviewed by the Ohio General Assembly Joint Committee on Agency Rule Review before taking effect.
