Trump administration offers rule to manage carbon emissions

The Trump administration recently issued a rule to reduce power plant carbon emissions. Known as the Affordable Clean Energy (ACE) rule, the new regulation will require power plants to work with state regulators to assess steps that can be taken to cut emissions through energy efficiency improvements.


America’s electric cooperatives welcomed the new rule, noting it is preferable to an earlier and more costlier attempt to regulate carbon emissions which ultimately was put on hold by the Supreme Court.
