Hey #EnergyTwitter, I'm going to write about this stupid Ohio bill. If you have any thoughts on it (or good links), do share.  https://www.cincinnati.com/story/news/politics/2019/07/23/ohio-nuclear-bailout-set-final-vote/1802640001/ 

This Ohio bill is unbelievable. So many sordid details. But here's my favorite sentence I've read so far in coverage: "FirstEnergy first revealed a year ago that the energy efficiency rules were interfering with normal market growth."

To translate: energy efficiency is causing FirstEnergy customers to reduce their energy consumption, and FirstEnergy is pitching that (to policymakers!) as a *problem*. It only profits if customers use more, more, more. Lord the utility sector is f'd up.
