On January 15, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) announced a new rule that will allow electric cooperatives to use small emergency generators for various purposes in order to ensure a stable flow of electricity at the local and regional level.  Kirk Johnson, senior vice president of the National Rural Electric Cooperative Association (NRECA), stated that the combined advocacy efforts of NRECA and member coops led to improved emergency demand-response provisions in the rule.  However, Johnson also said that NRECA was disappointed that the rule will only permit the use of generators for peak-shaving purposes through May 3, 2014, rather than for the four-year period included in an earlier EPA proposal.  For more information, click here.
