Ohio regulator tied to group fighting renewables



Published: Tue, January 29, 2013 @ 1:30 p.m.

COLUMBUS (AP) — An Ohio utility regulator who opposed a planned American Electric Power Co. solar farm and used his Twitter page to question global warming has ties to a group behind model legislation that would repeal states’ renewable-energy requirements.

Republican Todd Snitchler is chairman of the Public Utilities Commission of Ohio, which helps implement the state’s renewable requirements.

He was a keynote speaker at the American Legislative Exchange Council’s April 2011 spring task force meeting. The event took place the month after Gov. John Kasich appointed the former lawmaker to the PUCO.

A PUCO spokeswoman said Snitchler discussed telecommunications, broadband, energy and environmental issues.

An Associated Press review of public documents finds Snitchler attended meetings of the exchange council regularly from 2009 through 2011, up to nearly a year after leaving the Legislature.
