EPA Hearing on Greenhouse Gas Proposal
On February 14, 2019 EPA held a public hearing in Washington, DC on its proposed revisions to the 2015 New Source Performance Standards (NSPS) standards for greenhouse gases for new coal power plants.
ACC CEO Betsy Monseu testified at the hearing, calling EPA’s proposal “important and timely” in preserving a pathway for advanced new coal plants in the United States.
Monseu stated “This is a pragmatic approach for environmental policy. It can also help to sustain power sector fleet and fuel diversity. Such diversity is critical to the continued ability to supply reliable, resilient and affordable electricity to American homes and businesses.”
