Description (excerpt):

On August 3, 2015, the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) released the final version of its Clean Power Plan, a rule under Section 111(d) of the Clean Air Act that aims to reduce carbon dioxide (CO2) pollution from existing fossil fuel power plants.1

Since the rule was first proposed in draft form in June 2014, Synapse has been providing outreach and materials to NASUCA members to assist state consumer advocates in addressing the rule in a manner that is most cost-effective and efficient from an electricity consumer perspective. In this handbook, we explain how the final rule will be implemented, summarize the changes from the proposed rule, and discuss key issues for consumer advocates to consider when working with other stakeholders to develop compliance plans
