WASHINGTON, D.C. – The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency will hold a public hearing from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. Thursday, February 6 in rooms 1152 and 1153 in the William Jefferson Clinton East Building at 1201 Constitution Avenue, North West, on the Obama administration’s proposed carbon pollution standards for new power plants.
The proposed standards, which only apply to power plants built in the future, are flexible and would help minimize carbon pollution through the deployment of the same types of modern technologies and steps that power companies are already taking to build the next generation of power plants.
There are now no uniform national limits on the amount of carbon pollution new power plants may emit by law.
The EPA also will accept written comments on the proposed standards until March 10, 2014.
More information on the hearings and instructions for submitting written comments can be found online here.
