DEP to hold listening session on EPA Clean Power rule

The Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) will hold a listening session Thursday, September 25 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. to hear what you think of the US Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) Clean Power Rule. This rule will limit carbon pollution from the nation’s power plants by 30% by 2030. The rule will require states to develop plans to reduce carbon intensity from electric generation plants. In July, EPA held public hearings in Pittsburgh on how to implement the rule.

The Clean Air Board recently sponsored a forum at Dickinson College to discuss the issues raised the EPA proposed rule. At that forum, DEP Deputy Secretary Vince Brisini presented his views on the proposed rule.

Now you have the opportunity to inform DEP of your views on reducing carbon emissions. Please sign up to speak at the DEP listening session.
You can register for the listening session by contacting DEP’s Tammey Adams at 717-772-2725 or taadams@pa.gov.
