Clean Power


The long-awaited replacement for the Clean Power Plan was signed by Acting EPA Administrator Wheeler and then publicly released on August 21, 2018. Now called the Affordable Clean Energy (ACE) rule, EPA’s proposal addresses several of NRECA’s goals in a replacement rule:

1) Provides greater regulatory certainty and flexibility;
2) Is legally defensible by following precedent of the Clean Air Act;
3) Focuses on actions that are achievable ‘inside the fence line;’ and
4) Minimizes rate increases to co-op members-consumers
