NEUAC’s influence on the EPA’s Clean Power Plan

NEUAC submitted public comments in 2014, to urge those writing the EPA’s 111D guidelines to consider the unique needs of low-income households and the nature of their energy burden.  And, in March 2015, members of our coalition met with EPA and White House staff. The EPA heard us and as a result of our efforts, the EPA created a voluntary matching fund program states can use to provide an incentive for energy efficiency and renewable projects in low-income communities.

We continue to work with the EPA to assist with outreach to vulnerable communities and to those in our network creating successful programs to help states meet their Clean Power Plan goals.
