December 14, 2011

Emissions controls for coal-based generating units under current Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) rulemakings may cause significant financial and reliability challenges for electric coops, according to the National Rural Electric Cooperative Association (NRECA).  Because of their small size, coops may not be considered priority customers by emissions control companies that supply and install the needed equipment.  This may interrupt operations after the 2015 deadline for compliance.  You can read more about the NRECA comments on the EPA rules here.
