EPA Rule Will Responsibly Limit Power Plant Emissions

WASHINGTON, D.C.– The Environmental Protection Agency’s proposed power plant emissions rule will significantly reduce carbon pollution while giving states the flexibility they need to achieve these necessary reductions. 

“We cannot hope to tackle climate change unless we place limits on carbon pollution from power plants,” said Shannon Heyck-Williams, associate vice president of climate and energy for the National Wildlife Federation. “This rule establishes long-overdue limits on climate-disrupting pollution and will reduce emissions by improving efficiency, capturing carbon at the source and reducing the amount of fossil fuels we burn. It is a vital step toward meeting our climate goals and we look forward to engaging with EPA on the details.”
