Report: Green Investments Key to Jump-Starting Ohio’s Economy

January 14, 2009

Columbus, OH - A new report finds clean, green energy improvements could be the catalyst needed to kick-start Ohio's flagging economy. According to the study from Environment Ohio, hundreds of thousands of jobs could be created in the Buckeye State with investments in green energy and green infrastructure.

Program director Amy Gomberg says they are calling on the 111th Congress and President-elect Obama to pass a green stimulus plan as soon as possible.

"Our analysis shows that clean energy has the potential to be the workhorse of this economic recovery plan, and we're hoping that our proposals will fit right in with the Obama plan."

There are dozens of energy improvement projects in Ohio that just need a financial push, according to Gomberg.

"We have come up with a list of over 100 shovel-ready projects in cities all across the state where local governments are ready to put their employees back to work in a green way."

Gomberg adds that despite the economic downturn, the green energy industry is growing and creating new jobs.

The report finds $150 billion in improvements in clean energy, such as wind and solar power and public transit, could reduce global warming pollution by nearly 10 percent and reduce oil consumption by more than 25 million barrels annually.

The report "Clean Energy, Bright Future" can be found online at
