Ray Beck to Speak at Energy Press Conference

ceaCraig City Councilor and Club 20 member Ray Beck will speak at a press conference this morning at 9 in Denver.  Beck’s appearance is in relation to the EPA hearings going on in Denver today and tomorrow.  Consumer Energy Alliance (CEA), an advocate for energy consumers, will host a press conference with key consumer groups, labor, businesses and public officials to highlight reliability concerns and higher electricity prices stemming from the EPA’s proposed Clean Power Plan Rules.  The proposed rules call for a 30% reduction in carbon emissions, potentially affecting energy consumers in the region that are heavily reliant on coal-fired power to generate electricity. CEA and its stakeholders will share their perspectives on the importance of maintaining a balanced, all of the above fuel mix to keep prices affordable and reliable for ratepayers and energy-intensive industries.  The press conference takes place at the Oxford Hotel in Denver.  Also speaking will be Sean McCarville, Business Manager for the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers; Jeff Wadsen, President of the Colorado Business Roundtable; and Chad Vorthmann, Executive Vice President of the Colorado Farm Bureau.
