America needs an "all of the above strategy" to keep electric bills affordable!

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has issued new proposed rules limiting the carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions of new coal and natural gas based power plants.  Because of this, the Administration has abandoned its “all-of-the-above” energy strategy and embraced an “all-but-one” approach that effectively prevents construction of new coal-based generation.

Your help is needed today!  Urge EPA to reconsider its “all-but-one” approach.

Electric cooperatives strongly oppose this shift and believe the proposed rule should be withdrawn.  Co-ops support using a diverse fuel mix including renewable, solar, natural gas, nuclear, coal to generate electricity, and support using demand response and energy efficiency to use that energy wisely and keep costs affordable.  Co-ops also continue to deploy new technologies and are researching even more cutting edge technologies to meet the energy needs of the future.
