Has the EPA Clean Power Plan initiated a new round of near-term coal plant retirements?

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.
