TOLEDO, OH (Toledo News Now) -

Ohio's aggressive Clean Energy Law could be facing some major changes through a proposed bill. Many people are opposing this bill including the Lucas County Commissioners.

Senate Bill 310 is stirring up quite a bit of controversy. Opponents of this bill believe it would greatly reduce or put a freeze on energy efficiency in the state of Ohio.

Lucas County Commissioners came together with business leaders at Grogan's Towne Dealership on Tuesday May 6. It is one of the places that have experienced a large reduction in energy usage and costs because of an upgrade to energy efficient lighting.

"The city of Toledo and the whole area has seen significant improvements in energy efficiency and renewable energy efforts through a variety of initiatives including those implemented at the University of Toledo, the Toledo Museum of Art which installed a solar array," said Carol Contrada, Lucas County Commissioner.

Ohio's Senate Public Utilities Committee has scheduled a vote on this proposed bill on Wednesday.
