Despite current Supreme Court developments, many states are moving forward with plans to reduce carbon pollution from the power sector under the Environmental Protection Agency’s Clean Power Plan. The Clean Power Plan, which has a strong legal and technical foundation, sets the first ever federal limits on carbon pollution from power plants. Under the plan, states have the flexibility to create customized, cost-effective solutions and invest in clean energy sources, like wind and solar. From Tennessee to Indiana, states across the nation will continue forging ahead toward a cleaner, safer future that will create jobs and cut pollution.
Smart states are betting on the Clean Power Plan, and many utilities are following suit. They are doing so because investments in energy efficiency and renewable energy make smart economic sense.
Right now, New Hampshire has the opportunity to become a clean energy leader and create solutions that benefit our communities and our economy. I urge our state’s leaders to make the right choice by implementing the Clean Power Plan without delay.
