The Affordable Clean Energy rule (ACE) — finalized by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency on July 8, 2019 — consists of emission guidelines for greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from existing electric utility generating units (EGUs) under the federal Clean Air Act. The rule will inform states on the development, submission, and implementation of state plans to establish performance standards for GHG emissions from certain fossil fuel-fired EGUs.
The new rules will be a part of Ohio EPA’s plan for implementing the ACE program in the Buckeye State. Ohio EPA has issued an Early Stakeholder Outreach (ESO) to help develop the rules. If you or your company would like to provide input on ACE implementation, please contact Rob Brundrett. 10/10/2019
