EPA is accepting comments on its proposed Clean Power Plan, also commonly referred to as the 111(d) power plant rule. In this action, EPA is proposing state-specific goals and emission guidelines for states to follow in developing plans to address carbon dioxide emissions from existing fossil fuel-fired electric generating units.
The proposed rule called “Carbon Pollution Emission Guidelines for Existing Stationary Sources: Electricity Utility Generating Units” is posted at: http://www.epa.gov/cleanpowerplan.
EPA will accept comments on the proposed rule for 120 days after it is published in the Federal Register. Comments should be made directly to EPA via the options listed in the proposed rule.
EPA will also hold four public hearings on this proposal. Hearings will be held in Atlanta, Georgia and Denver, Colorado July 29, 2014; in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania July 31, 2014; and in Washington, DC during the week of July 28, 2014. When available, the date of the public hearing in Washington, DC will be published in the Federal Register and on the website listed above.
