Join us on October 21 from 4-9 at the HOMEARAMA 2020 Homeshow!
Our signature Green Energy Ohio Tour is cancelled for 2020. However, Green Energy Ohio invites participants to the ASES Virtual National Solar Tour.
This month we are sharing a program that has been underway since 2015, and continues today. Beginning five years ago, GEO and its business members have partnered with the Ohio Department of Rehabilitation and Corrections (ODRC) to train offenders through the “Understanding Photovoltaics” program and endeavored to place them in the Ohio solar industry after release.
As a result of today’s indictments alleging widespread acts of corruption, Green Energy Ohio (GEO) calls for the repeal of House Bill 6. GEO joins other environmental organizations, clean energy business leaders, and Ohio activists in calling for immediate action.
Belinda began her career at EOU as Vice President in 2011 and, because the company was a startup, the scope of her responsibilities was large. She recalls doing "anything and everything needed, including a little project management, lots of marketing and business development, and administrative work.”
Produced by Bekah Alviani and Claudia Hoerr for Bowling Green State University's, ARTC 4410 Collaborative Digital Arts Development, to serve as a public service announcement promoting renewable energy in Ohio.
We know that clean energy creates jobs. Growth in the renewable energy, energy efficiency, and clean transportation industries has outpaced other economic sectors in recent years. We also know that the industry took a hit in the recent pandemic shutdown, with as much as a 17 percent job loss nationwide. Given demand for energy that reduces costs and addresses climate change, forecasters expect a rebound in the employment numbers as the economy reopens.
In 2009, when the U.S. was still recovering from economic recession and unemployment rates were soaring, renewable energy was largely viewed as a novelty. “People didn’t know about the product - where to get it or how to use it”, Azam recalled. And yet, in this same year, YellowLite was founded in Cleveland, Ohio.
We were extremely disappointed to find out that what we initially envisioned as a victory for clean energy instead contained a poison pill that could undermine the entire effort. It calls into question not only the future of the project but also the legitimacy of the approval process.
We need to join together to protect and preserve both. We need to listen to communities whose voices have long gone unheard, learn from their experiences, and include racial and social justice in environmental conversations. Green Energy Ohio is proud to partner in those endeavors and committed to fight for all our precious resources every day.
