Report: Power Plants can Handle Proposed Emissions Reductions

The Hill: According to a new report from corporate sustainability group Ceres, “The country’s top 100 electricity producers have reduced emissions of major pollutants in recent years, showing that they could likely handle the new limits on carbon dioxide coming soon from the Environmental Protection Agency.”

Ceres “found that the major producers reduced emissions of carbon dioxide 13 percent between 2008 and 2012.”

Mindy Lubber, president of Ceres: “The electric power industry is firmly on the path toward a low-carbon energy future, and history shows that it is not only capable of meeting new pollution limits, but that it can do so while keeping our lights on and our economy growing.”
