The Ohio Revised Code

The Rules

The Ohio Revised Code contains all statutes of a permanent and general nature of the state, i.e., the laws of Ohio. The chapter titled CHAPTER 4906: POWER SITING, describes the statutes that control the operation of the The Ohio Power Siting Board. A pdf copy of this chapter is available below for viewing or downloading.

One particular section, 4906.10 Basis for decision granting or denying certificate, is extremely important to our success in persuading FirstEnergy and the OPSB that the proposed Thompson, Montville and Huntsburg transmission line corridor is not acceptable. This section details eight specific conditions that must be satisfied before a certificate of environmental compatibility and public need is granted.
