Posted Tuesday, February 26, 2008

An energy bill working its way through Columbus could dramatically change the state, doing everything from jump starting the renewable energy industry to transforming the bottom line on utility bills. This push for green energy is coming from the Republicans and has bipartisan support, but the potential future of rate regulation...well, that's going to be tougher to figure out. Tuesday, we'll talk about the change on the horizon, what it means for your pocketbook and for our state's prospects for actually going green. Join us at 9 a.m.
