What Will Proposed EPA Pollution Standards Mean for Power Companies?


What Will Proposed EPA Pollution Standards Mean for Power Companies?

by John M. Scagnelli

Late last month, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) proposed the first Clean Air Act standard for addressing carbon pollution. According to the EPA, the standard is in line with investments already being made by the power industry and will inform the building of new plants moving forward.

It is important to highlight that the proposed rulemaking only concerns new generating units that will be built in the future. It does not apply to existing units already operating or units that will start construction over the next 12 months.
