On August 3, 2015, President Obama announced his Clean Power Plan. So what does it mean for Pennsylvania?
Pennsylvania Governor Tom Wolf has expressed support for the President’s Clean Power Plan, “Pennsylvania is a leader in energy, and we need to do everything in our power to advance the next generation of energy production while protecting jobs in Pennsylvania,” continued Governor Wolf. “Clean coal is a part of our energy portfolio, as is natural gas, solar, wind, and other sources of power, and all of this has to be part of a comprehensive strategy. My administration looks forward to working with industry leaders and legislators as well as citizens to find the right balance and develop and effective and responsible state plan.”
Pennsylvanians will have multiple options for input as the Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) formulates a state-specific plan to comply with the EPA rule. A public comment period on the EPA rule will begin in early September, with additional comment periods over the next three years as the Pennsylvania plan is drafted and finalized. We can assist you with such comments.
The opinions of other Pennsylvania stakeholders, including yours, will be heard over the coming days, weeks, months, and years. Prince Law Offices, P.C. can help you and your business be heard, control utility costs, leverage renewable wind, solar, Combined Heat Power (CHP) and more. Contact Attorney Jeffrey A. Franklin for more information. Here is what President Obama views as the impacts of his Clean Power Plan to Pennsylvania from https://www.whitehouse.gov/climate-change:
