Standards of Performance for Greenhouse Gas Emissions from Existing and Modified Electric Generating Units

Environmental Protection Agency

This proposed regulation would require states to cut the amount of carbon dioxide their power plants emit for each megawatt of electricity generated, with each state having specific targets to meet by 2020 and 2030. EPA estimates this will lead to the power industry’s CO2 emissions dropping 30 percent below 2005 levels by 2030.
