Ohio legislative leaders and key staff toured AMP’s Belleville and Willow Island facilities on Aug. 10 to gain a better knowledge of run-of-the-river hydroelectric generation. Legislators in attendance included Sens. Troy Balderson (R-Zanesville) and Sandra Williams (D-Cleveland), and Rep. Christina Hagan (R-Alliance). All three are members of the Ohio Energy Mandates Study Committee, with Balderson serving as co-chair. AMP’s hydro development on the Ohio River has made the organization an industry expert and many policymakers in AMP’s footprint reach out to us as a resource for information.
