Appeals Court Supports Clean Power Plan

A Federal appeals court rejected a plea by Wisconsin and more than two dozen other states that sought to delay enforcement of the the US EPA Clean Power Plan (CPP), which is designed to cut greenhouse gas emissions from power plants.  The CPP requires Wisconsin to cut carbon emissions by 34 percent by 2030.  Wisconsin has until September to submit an initial draft plan by stakeholders that is customized to the state for increased energy efficiency, renewable energy expansion and reduced use of coal fired power plants.  Otherwise, Wisconsin will be required to follow the federal path to compliance.  For more information
