Cleveland Ohio in the evening

Following the passage of Senate Resolution 155 which supports consumer choice in the automotive marketplace, Consumer Energy Alliance released the following statement by Midwest Executive Director Chris Ventura:

“We applaud Senator Gavarone and the overwhelming majority of Senators for believing that Ohioans should have access to cars and trucks that meet their diverse mobility needs – not limited by misguided, draconian policies that deny consumer choice in the automotive marketplace that have been proven to increase costs while offering no meaningful environmental benefit.”

CEA’s report, Freedom to Fuel: Consumer Choice in the Automotive Marketplace, details how electric vehicle mandates will force consumers into paying more in overall transportation costs and create potentially catastrophic pressure on the electric grid if those and other serious issues are not addressed beforehand. It also examines key constraints that must be addressed by policymakers before widespread EV adoption can successfully occur, including infrastructure build-out, the ability of electric generation to meet increased demand and critical mineral scarcity.
