History

Over 45 years of Helping Businesses Clean the Air and Save Money.

Over the years, OAQDA’s role grew from its original mission to assist large Ohio industries in controlling air pollution and complying with the Clean Air Act of 1970. The agency took on responsibility for helping small businesses in complying with clean air regulations in 1993. Ohio’s clean coal program, the Ohio Coal Development Office, was added to OAQDA in 2003.  And in 2008, the Authority was tapped to administer Ohio’s $150 million Advanced Energy Job Stimulus Program, giving the agency the ability to become a source of new job development in tomorrow’s technologies.

Today, OAQDA supports Ohio’s role as a leader in advanced energy research, development and deployment as it has in the past and will for many years to come.
