Alliance Files Comments to Help Shape Delaware’s Clean Power Compliance Plan

Mar 1, 2016

The Alliance filed comments with the Delaware Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Control today urging the state to consider industrial energy-efficiency options, particularly combined heat and power (CHP) and waste heat to power (WHP), for inclusion in the state’s proposed Clean Power Compliance Plan. We also commend Delaware’s continued dedication in developing a state compliance plan despite the Supreme Court stay of EPA’s proposed rule. As Governor Markell recently acknowledged, “the Clean Power Plan represents a sensible and flexible approach for states to make the changes required to protect our economy and quality of life.” Additionally, Delaware’s forward-thinking actions, such as its participation as a founding member in the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative (RGGI), represents a significant step forward in reducing state carbon emissions and creating a reliable, diverse, and affordable energy mix for Delaware.
