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. A rulemaking kickoff workshop was held  in Columbus on June 9, 2016.

Going forward, stakeholders and the public will have additional opportunities to provide input during the formal rulemaking process. The OPSB will issue proposed draft rules, and then a formal written comment-and-reply comment period among interested parties will begin. At the conclusion of the comment-and-reply comment period, the OPSB will issue final rules to be reviewed by the legislature before taking effect.
