EPA Cracks Down on Power Plant Emissions
The Environmental Protection Agency released new standards for existing power plants on Monday, aimed at cutting carbon emissions by 30 percent by 2030. Power plants currently account for 39 percent of U.S. emissions. The EPA expects the country will save $90 billion in climate and health benefits. States will determine how to meet requirements by either forcing power plants to switch fuel sources or by increasing use of solar, wind and hydropower.
