As we mentioned previously, the Governor’s upcoming budget bill (in case you missed it, Kasich seems to have so much fun introducing legislation, he has elected to move us to a one-year budget process) will contain a number of changes to the state’s energy policy. While our earlier post contained an abbreviated summary, we now have more information on some of the Governor’s plans.

In an interview with reporters yesterday, Kasich indicated he would indeed be introducing a new budget on or before March 12.

Kasich: “it will have 8 or 9 different pillars and it will involve renewables, what we can do with coal, natural gas, energy efficiency…”

We also have acquired a copy of a presentation from the Governor’s Office that goes into far greater detail. The document outlines the 10 pillars of the Governor’s energy strategy:

1. Shale 6. Cogeneration/Waste Heat Recovery
2. Generation 7. Energy Efficiency
3. Electricity Transmission and Distribution 8. Coal
4. Workforce Training 9. Regulatory Reform
5. CNG/Alternative Fuels 10. Renewables
