MJB&A, Analysis Group
M.J. Bradley & Associates LLC (MJB&A) and Sue Tierney and Paul Hibbard from the Analysis Group recently completed a report reviewing the impact on power plant operations of proposed Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) rules to reduce emissions of sulfur dioxide, nitrogen oxides, mercury and other hazardous air pollutants.
The report, “Ensuring a Clean, Modern Electric Generating Fleet while Maintaining Electric System Reliability,” finds the industry is well-positioned to respond to more stringent EPA clean air regulations, and that the EPA can move forward in a timely way on new air quality rules for power plant emissions to improve public health while maintaining the reliability of the nation’s power system.
The report was prepared on behalf of a coalition of electric companies, including: Calpine Corp., Constellation Energy, Entergy Corp., Exelon Corp., NextEra Energy, National Grid, PG&E Corp., and Public Service Enterprise Group. These eight companies are some of the nation’s largest generators of electricity, with more than 170,000 MW of electric generating capacity (including 110,000 MW of fossil generating capacity) throughout the U.S. Together, these companies serve nearly a fifth of all U.S. electric customers.
