EPA’s Clean Power Plan
: Also commonly known as, "the Carbon Rule or the
111(d) rule," As part of the Clean Air Act, EPA is authorized to regulate CO2 pollution from existing plants in order to meet the goal of reducing
CO2 emissions 30% by 2030. EPA is working with states, tribes, and utilities to create state implementation plans and reduce carbon pollution based
upon 4 building blocks, including: 1) Making existing coal plants more efficient, 2) using existing natural gas plants more effectively, 3)
increasing renewable energy use and 4) increasing end-use energy efficiency.
NTAA hosted a 3-part webinar series discussing EPA’s Clean Power Plan that you can view here
