Call to Action: Advocate against the EPA’s new rule on energy

COALITON_BACKGROUNDThe National Grange is working with America’s Electric Cooperatives to advocate against the EPA’s new rule. Tell EPA that its new rule on existing power plants will jeopardize the economy, cause energy prices to skyrocket, kill jobs and penalize low income Americans.


UPDATE: EPA Extends Comment Period for Coal-Fired Power Plant Rule 


The EPA has extended the comment period for its proposed rule to limit power plant emissions from October 16 to December 1.  Coal, at 39%, is the largest single source of electricity generation in the country.  The electric utilities warn the rule will cause more than 600 generating plants to close before sufficient alternative  power sources (natural gas, renewable energy, wind and solar) are capable of filling the void.
