Clean Power Plan Hearing in Denver this Month

EPA-300The EPA finalized the federal Clean Power Plan in August. The Clean Power Plan will reduce nationwide carbon dioxide emissions from power plants 32 percent by 2030. It’s a plan that has the energy industry up in arms, as it will cost millions of dollars in upgrades at power plants across the country, skyrocketing energy prices. Many scientists also say the move will not likely improve health standards, as carbon dioxide is not a pollutant. A public meeting will be held in Denver on September 25th regarding the development of Colorado’s plan to meet its emission reduction targets. The state is putting together a plan that meets the federal requirements in a way that does as little harm to Colorado as possible. The meeting on September 25th will include a summary of EPA’s Clean Power Plan and an overview of the process for developing the state plan, followed by an opportunity for public comment. Public comment can also be made by email to cdphe.commentsapcd@state.co.us. If you would like to attend the hearing, you’ll need to register by clicking here.
