National Tribal Air Association's PRK on EPA's Affordable Clean Energy (ACE) Proposal

The NTAA has published a Memo on EPA’s Final ACE Rule
NTAA’s Policy Advisory Committee member Pilar Thomas drafted a memo to summarize the recent final rulemaking actions taken by the EPA related to greenhouse gas emissions: the repeal of the Clean Power Plan (CPP); the promulgation of a final rule for the Affordable Clean Energy Plan (ACE); and amendments to the Section 111(d) regulations. This memo will help Tribes better understand the implications and next steps after EPA issued the ACE on July 8, 2019.

EPA has proposed a replacement for the Clean Power Plan, which is known as the Affordable Clean Energy (ACE) rule. If passed, the ACE rule would eliminate the emission reduction goals and emission standards for electric generating units (EGUs), and replace them with heat rate improvement (HRI) candidate technologies for coal fired power plants. The proposed rules also include changes in regulations affecting the New Source Review Program. The NTAA has developed this Fact Sheet to help Tribes better understand the proposed rules. The comment deadline for the ACE Proposed Rules was October 31, 2018.
