WASHINGTON—The National Association of Regulatory Utility Commissioners, in its ongoing efforts to promote the exchange of information concerning the Environmental Protection Agency’s Clean Power Plan, has issued the following statement on the release of Implementing EPA’s Clean Power Plan: Model State Plans by the National Association of Clean Air Agencies (NACAA):

“NARUC, like so many other stakeholders, has a vested interest in the EPA’s Clean Power Plan and subsequent rulings on the matter. While we await definitive answers on the CPP, our fellow stakeholder group, the NACAA, has released a document intended to assist those states who are reviewing their options and working on draft compliance plans if the Supreme Court’s stay of the Plan is lifted.

“This document is a considerable body of work that represents thorough and comprehensive models and options for a range of contexts, based on extensive research and engagement with various stakeholder communities. NACAA’s undertaking is certainly worthy of review by those states working on compliance plans.”

A copy of the document is available on NACAA’s website,, and on NARUC’s Clean Power Plan Resource page,
