EPA disclosed more details on how the agency would move forward with helping states take steps to cut carbon in advance of the clean power plan. The agency sent a proposal for the Clean Energy Incentive Program (CEIP) to OMB for review. What does this mean in light of the stay of the CPP? Climate Wire asked AEE's own Arvin Ganesan:
"Even with the Clean Power Plan under judicial review, states can benefit from having a clear path toward CEIP eligibility," said Arvin Ganesan, vice president of federal policy for the business group Advanced Energy Economy. "This shows that EPA is moving forward, even under the stay, to give states the tools they need to prepare for action under the Clean Power Plan."
