This page provides resources related to the Environmental Protection Agency’s Clean Power Plan.
On August 3, 2015, the EPA proposed a federal plan for the Clean Power Plan that will also serve as a model rule for states developing their state plans.
For Constructing State Plans for the Clean Power Plan: the First Questions To Ask, the NARUC Research Lab worked since the summer of 2015 to gather some of the long-term timelines, resources, and technical materials that may be informative to states considering the development of their state compliance plans for the US EPA’s Clean Power Plan. (To be read with awareness of the February 9, 2016 Supreme Court stay.)
