The Energy Strategy Coalition is a group of companies that operates in nearly every state and includes some of the nation’s largest investor-owned electric and gas utilities, public power authorities and generators of electricity from renewable, nuclear and gas-fired sources.
The EPA’s proposal of carbon pollution standards for existing coal-fired power plants and new and existing gas-fired power plants represents an important step for the U.S. electricity sector. Well-designed standards can help support the deployment of technologies supported by the Inflation Reduction Act and the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act and serve as a backstop to the emission reductions expected to occur under both of these laws.
The Coalition looks forward to examining EPA’s proposals in more detail and providing comments on how durable carbon pollution standards can support its members’ and this Administration’s decarbonization objectives, while preserving affordability, reliability, job-creation and strong incentives for the continued deployment and operation of zero-carbon resources.
