Clean Power Plan
On Feb. 9, 2016, the U.S. Supreme Court issued an order staying EPA’s Clean Power Plan (CPP).
You can find out more about the stay at supremecourt.gov/orders/courtorders/020916zr_21p3.pdf and on EPA’s website at epa.gov/cleanpowerplan/regulatory-actions.
On Aug. 3, 2015, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) released the final version of its Clean Power Plan. It places federal standards on carbon emissions from existing power plants that generate electricity. The plan sets a deadline of 2030 for these plants to reduce emissions of carbon dioxide.
