LPSC EPA Cross State Air Pollution Rule Technical Conference, August 26, 2011

LPSC Cross State Air Pollution Rule Workshop 8-26-11

Attached is the agenda for an upcomig technical conference hosted by the LPSC staff to discuss the EPA’s Cross-State Air Pollution Rule which was announced on July 7, 2011.

This is an extremely important matter for the LPSC, the state of Louisiana, and utility customers, in particular. There is legitimate concern that  implementation of the rule by the EPA as proposed will result in the shuttering of existing power plants unable to obtain compliance standards within the timeline proposed by the EPA. The shuttering of these power plants will likely result in higher rates for utility customers, and may also cause rolling blackouts in Texas and other areas due to insufficient power generation capacity.  The implementation of the EPA rule will require the LPSC and its staff to perform an in-depth analysis and evaluation of the costs that will be incurred by LPSC-jurisdictional utility companies in order to comply with the new rule, and the consequential implications on ratemaking and generation planning. This technical conference is the first step. All stakeholders in the utility industry(utilities, customers, investors, etc.) and interested parties should attend.
