Coalition Comments on the Affordable Clean Energy (“ACE”) Rule

The Associations represent the Nation’s leading energy and manufacturing sectors that form the backbone of the Nation’s industrial ability to grow our economy and provide jobs in an environmentally sustainable and energy-efficient manner. The Associations represent members who both generate and rely on the generation of electricity, and thus have a compelling interest in how EPA may regulate environmental aspects of electricity production.
 
The Associations support EPA’s proposal to promulgate the ACE Rule, which would establish emission guidelines for State plans that will include standards of performance for GHG emissions from certain existing electric utility generating units (“EGUs”) under Section 111(d) of the Clean Air Act.
