A nearly daily update of energy-related news:
- On Tuesday evening, the Supreme Court temporarily granted a stay request from a group of more than two dozen states, utilities and coal companies to stop implementation of the EPA’s Clean Power Plan until legal challenges to the rule are resolved. The Clean Power Plan would require every state to submit a plan on how they would reduce CO2 emissions from their electricity sectors by a set amount and would take effect by 2022 at the latest. A link to Luminant’s statement on the EPA Clean Power Plan proposal can be found here.
