U.S. EPA's Clean Power Plan; 111(d) Rules

Overview

On June 2, 2014, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, under the authority of the Clean Air Act, proposed rules to reduce carbon pollution from existing electricity-generating power plants. Termed the Clean Power Plan, it requires each state to develop a unique state-specific plan to achieve carbon reduction targets by 2030. 

Ohio EPA is working closely with the Public Utilities Commission of Ohio (PUCO) and is collecting input from interested parties on how this rule package would affect Ohio. All comments received will be considered as Ohio EPA and PUCO develop the State's comments to U.S. EPA on this plan. The state must submit comments to U.S. EPA by Dec. 1, 2014. If you would like to submit concerns, comments or information that Ohio EPA should consider in preparation of the state’s comments on the U.S. EPA proposal, please email them to 111drulecomments@epa.ohio.gov.
