Comment to EPA and Congress about carbon emission regulations

by on September 15, 2014

AEP is asking for your help to contact the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and Congress about an issue that is critical to all of us — the EPA’s proposed Clean Power Plan to cut carbon emissions from existing power plants.

The proposed rule is built on flawed assumptions and overly aggressive timelines that will raise electricity costs for our customers, threaten reliability and force the retirement of additional coal-fueled generation. We need to urge the EPA to develop more realistic emission reduction targets and timetables.

You will find everything you need to submit comments to the EPA and your lawmakers at the AEP Action Network website. Through the site, you can register as an AEP Advocate and send a pre-written letter or craft your own message if you wish. Please feel free to share the link with your family and friends, who can also register on the site and send their own letters to the EPA and to their representatives in Washington. The deadline for comments is Dec. 1.

Your voice can make a big difference in helping the EPA and Congress understand the impact of this proposed rule.
