Ohio Hydropower Land Use Planning(1-OH)

Ohio generally delegates land use planning to local municipalities, townships, and counties. A hydropower developer should contact the appropriate local government to ensure that the proposed transmission project is consistent with planning, zoning, and development regulations.

However, the Ohio Public Utilities Commission (PUCO) has authority to regulate public utilities, O.R.C. § 4905.04, and the Ohio Power Siting Board (Board) has authority to regulate “major utility facilities,” Ohio – Ohio Rev. Code §§ 4906.01 et seq., Power Siting.
