Ohio SB 128 would create a zero-emissions nuclear resource program to subsidize the state’s nuclear plants for providing fuel diversity and environmental benefits. The proposal is similar to programs in New York and Illinois which are facing lawsuits for discriminating specific generating units and infringing on the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission’s authority over interstate electricity markets, underscoring the need for market-based solutions to drive the nuclear industry in future.
