New EPA Regulations

Recently proposed EPA regulations that target existing power plants could add to the price of electricity, and have serious consequences for our communities and our energy future. This rule could threaten affordability, jeopardize reliability, and endanger American jobs. It’s vital that we move quickly and turn our focus to this rule so that you, our members have a voice and we can help turn the lights on in Washington. Together, we can send a strong message to the EPA.

We can’t afford to rest for a minute in our mission to make sure electric cooperative members are heard on these monumental EPA regulatory efforts. Join us in the process right now as we mobilize for a round of comments to EPA. Go to Action.coop today and let EPA know you want affordable and reliable power.
