American families and businesses expect the lights to stay on at a price they can afford. Our national energy policies must support this fundamental promise. But burdensome new regulations threaten the future of reliable energy.
What’s Happened? In May, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) proposed unworkable regulations for new and existing power plants.
Electric cooperatives are driving innovation in low- and zero-emission energy technologies. However, this proposal would require the use of carbon capture and hydrogen technologies that are promising but not yet commercially viable. This will force the early closure of always available power plants while also making it harder to permit, site, and build critical new power plants.
This proposal will further strain America’s electric grid and undermine decades of work to keep the lights on. The EPA must recognize the disruptive impact these requirements will have on the future of reliable energy before it’s too late.
We need YOUR help to make a difference!
Act today and tell the EPA that keeping the lights on is essential. Your voice matters. Join us in urging the EPA to reconsider these regulations and prioritize policies that ensure a reliable and affordable energy supply for the future.
