NRECA Speaks Out Against EPA Turbine Plan

The National Rural Electric Cooperative Association (NRECA) is urging the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to back off on its proposed revisions to New Source Performance Standards (NSPS) for stationary gas turbines and stationary combustion turbine
January 8, 2013

The National Rural Electric Cooperative Association (NRECA) is urging the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to back off on its proposed revisions to New Source Performance Standards (NSPS) for stationary gas turbines and stationary combustion turbines.  According to the NRECA, the revisions are flawed because the revised standards would be made retroactive to February 2005 and would impose too many reconstruction requirements on existing structures, thus increasing the costs of combustion turbine facilities.  The proposed revisions seek to adopt a radically narrow definition of a "combustion turbine," and that definition would determine whether "reconstruction" has been triggered under the NSPS clean air regulatory program.  To read more about the potential consequences of this proposal to coops, click here.
