Today the Obama Administration finalized EPA’s long awaited Clean Power Plan. The groundbreaking rule aims to reduce carbon pollution from existing coal plants by 32% over the next 15 years. The Plan provides flexibility for each State to meet its emission reduction targets and is packaged as a three-pronged opportunity. An opportunity for States to meet their emissions reduction targets by investing heavily in renewable energy and kick starting the local clean energy economy which goes hand in hand with a sustainable energy future. States have an opportunity to reduce consumer electricity bills with new efficiency measures. Lastly, the Plan is an opportunity for States to reduce public health hazards of power plant pollution, which contributes to asthma, heart attacks and premature deaths.
