Pioneer Electric supports repeal of Clean Power Plan

PAY BY PHONE: 888.836.1422

Pioneer Electric supports the efforts of Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Scott Pruitt to repeal the mandates of the Clean Power Plan in favor of a collaborative, common-sense approach that maintains the delivery of clean, safe, reliable, and affordable electricity.

As the EPA develops a new approach to regulating carbon dioxide, Pioneer emphasizes that the revised structure must:
 

  • be consistent with the EPA’s decades-long practice that technological or operational performance standards can be implemented at the source itself;
  • protect reliability of energy supply to consumers and businesses;
  • minimize undue economic impact for consumers; and
  • provide electric cooperatives with long-term regulatory clarity and certainty.
     

Ohio electric cooperatives have invested $1.2 billion in emissions control systems at their Brilliant, Ohio-based Cardinal Generating Station, the primary source of power for Ohio’s electric cooperative network. Cardinal is now considered one of the most environmentally friendly coal-fired power plants on the globe.
