The American Council on Renewable Energy (ACORE) announced its support for CPP the day it was announced.

ACORE board member and Dentons principal Sydney McNiff Johnson commented as a business leader within the industry and suggested that this development is overdue. "The fact is, many companies are already pricing carbon into their business models for the future. EPA can capitalize on this private-sector development by encouraging carbon markets and opening the door to clean energy build-out."
