Advocates for affordable electricity take a stand on EPA rules

In June, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) announced new rules that will significantly impact how electricity is generated in the United States. The “Clean Power Plan” seeks to reduce the carbon dioxide coming from existing U.S. power plants significantly by 2030, but fails to consider the implication of such an aggressive mandate on the cost of electricity or the importance of its reliability. 

Americans to feds: Enough is enough

Tens of thousands of consumers across the West already have spoken out against proposed rules by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) that would produce big electricity price increases while offering miniscule benefits.

Keep Electricity Affordable, a not-for-profit organization with more than 100,000 supporters, has been gathering comments from people like you about the EPA’s proposed Clean Power Plan, which would result in double-digit electricity price increases for consumers while having virtually no impact on climate change.
