EPA Clean Power Plan
The Clean Power Plan (CPP) will cut carbon pollution emissions from the nation’s power plants under the Clean Air Act. The CPP gives states flexibility in how to meet carbon emission limits, presenting opportunities to modernize the power grid and deploy more clean energy (including renewables) while reducing harmful emissions.
