Ohio's Alternative Energy Zones are made possible through Ohio's Senate Bill 232, which reduced taxes on alternative energy projects. The Alternative Energy Zones are designated on a county-by-county basis, and provide developers with incentive for projects located in these counties. Incentives include a quicker approval process and set rates for revenue.
