Unleash the tremendous potential of Ohio wind energy jobs instead of bailing out nuclear plants, https://www.cleveland.com/letters/2020/08/unleash-the-tremendous-potential-of-ohio-wind-energy-jobs-instead-of-bailing-out-nuclear-plants.html      By Other Voices, David Hughes, Madison 17 Aug 20,

State Rep. Jamie Callender is wrong (”Ohio and Lake County still need the policy of HB 6,” Aug. 12): Ohio electricity ratepayers should not be forced to pay increased rates to keep two failing nuclear plants open. FirstEnergy has a long history of bad management decisions and did not deserve a taxpayer bailout.

Rep. Callender would be smarter to develop a plan to put those nuclear plant workers, and thousands more, to work in the renewable energy sector. He should start by repealing the “wind setback” law. This would unleash enormous growth in wind energy exactly where the nuclear plants are. The bonus would be no more deadly nuclear waste from two uneconomical and unsafe nuclear plants.
