CO Public Meeting
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has finalized new rules designed to reduce carbon emissions from coal-fired power plants across the country. Known collectively as the Clean Power Plan, the rules are designed to maintain an affordable, reliable energy system while cutting pollution and protecting public health and the environment. The Clean Power Plan includes new source performance standards and emission guidelines for both new and existing electric generating units.
Colorado has already taken a number of regulatory initiatives to reduce carbon pollution, including retiring or repowering coal-fired units, increasing renewable energy use and energy efficiency, and reducing energy demand. The state will develop a plan that meets Colorado’s needs.
Colorado is developing a Clean Power Plan through a public process. The process includes opportunities for input from diverse stakeholders across Colorado. Watch this website for more information about upcoming public meetings.
