The Environmental Protection Agency is preparing to issue a series of proposals covering air, water and waste pollution from power generators, especially coal-fired power plants, EPA Administrator Michael Regan said Thursday.
The pending actions will give the power sector increased certainty around where it makes the most sense to invest: upgrading existing power plants or retiring them to focus on new forms of generation, Regan said at the CERAWeek energy conference in Houston.
“We’re looking at a full suite of opportunities that marry a range of EPA authorities,” Regan said. “We don’t have to overly rely on any one policy or rulemaking to achieve our mission and ensure affordable and reliable energy.”
