We hope you can join the Sierra Club for our annual Chapter Retreat. As one of the largest and most influential environmental organizations in the state, this is the time each year where we celebrate our victories, renew our spirits, and make our plans the year ahead. All are welcome, and meals will be provided for members who register.
In June 2014, Governor Kasich signed into law a bill that guts Ohio’s clean energy and efficiency standards. Passing this new law was not enough for Ohio’s utilities, though.
Now, Ohio’s largest electric utilities, AEP, Duke, and FirstEnergy are seeking to keep a number of Ohio’s oldest and dirtiest power plants open for years to come.
And they want you and me to pay for it.
The Ohio Chapter Conservation Committee (Cons Com) is comprised of members and activists from across the state working on a variety of state and local environmental issues. The committee prioritizes Chapter conservation work and oversees several issue sub-committees. The Cons Com meets bi-monthly on the same day as the Executive Committee.
