Energy Efficiency and Alternative Energy Rulemaking
The PUCO has initiated its five-year review of Ohio’s energy efficiency and alternative energy portfolio standard rules in case numbers 13-651-EL-ORD and 13-652-EL-ORD. The rulemaking will include consideration of all existing rule language in Ohio Administrative Code chapters 4901:1-39 and 4901:1-40 as well as possible rule revisions resulting from the enactment of Ohio Senate Bill 315.
PUCO staff hosted a rulemaking workshop on April 23, 2013 to allow stakeholders to provide feedback and propose revisions to existing rules before the staff issues draft rule amendments later this year.

Does this workshop replace the PUCO’s formal comment process?
No. This workshop is not a substitute for the Commission’s formal comment process. Instead, it serves to inform the PUCO staff about stakeholder views. Once the staff has an opportunity to consider the input received at the workshop, it will issue proposed rule amendments. These draft rules will then be subject to a formal written comment and reply comment period. All stakeholders, whether they participated in the workshop or not, may file formal comments with the Commission once the draft rules have been issued.
