Statement on proposed rule for GHG emissions at existing plants

Luminant today released the following statement:

We look forward to reviewing the rule given its significant impact. Ultimately, this rule must fit within the legal framework of the Clean Air Act, which includes setting achievable emission requirements using proven, real world technologies.

The EPA must now give Texas broad flexibility and sufficient time to form an implementation plan tailored to its unique regional needs. As the state that consumes and generates more electricity than any other, Texas must have the flexibility necessary to keep pace with the growing demand for power to serve our ever-growing population and economy.

In addition to offering our comments to the EPA, we’ll discuss with industry groups the appropriate path forward and also work with the state to develop a workable compliance plan for Texas that doesn’t harm reliability or the economy.
