Washington, D.C. – The American Coalition for Clean Coal Electricity called a two-year delay in implementation of EPA’s anticipated carbon regulations “irrelevant” citing an increase in electricity costs and decrease in electricity reliability as result of the rule.

 

“That the White House is reported to provide two additional years for states to comply with its wholly unworkable regulations is irrelevant as American families and businesses will still bear the brunt of more costly, less reliable electricity,” said Laura Sheehan, senior vice president for communications at ACCCE. “In issuing the regulations, the administration will have ignored the concerns of Members of Congress, leaders in a super-majority of states, citizens from coast to coast, businesses of every size, policy experts, regulators and legal experts. Should the EPA move forward to issue these regulations as final, we will do everything in our power to get them thrown out.”
