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.
