Report summary

The EPA's proposed Clean Power Plan (CPP) may already be having an impact in the near-term, namely the unexpected announced closures or natural gas conversions of several coal-fired generators, with owners specifically referencing carbon regulations in several instances. This Insight summarizes some of these actions and explores whether or not there could be more near-term coal retirements as a result of the CPP, with particular focus on a group of Texas coal plants.
