The American Coalition for Clean Coal Electricity released a report October 26 finding that new Environmental Protection Agency rules on pollution control and coal ash management could cost power companies $13 billion a year. The report, Economic Implications of Recent and Anticipated EPA Regulations Affecting the Electricity Sector, concluded that the regulations could cause 42 GW of coal-fired capacity to close by 2019, resulting in the loss of 1.5 million jobs over the next four years. The report pointed out seven regulations that affect the power industry: regional haze regulations, the mercury air toxics standards, proposed regulations for coal ash disposal, the national ambient air quality standards for sulfur dioxide, proposed regulations for cooling water intake towers, air quality standards for particulate matter, and air quality standards for ozone.
