EPA’s Carbon Regulation Harms Coloradans

WASHINGTON — Today, the EPA began public hearings in Denver to fulfill the agency’s public engagement and outreach obligations for their carbon regulation. The American Energy Alliance is providing the below background information to demonstrate how the Obama administration’s carbon regulation stands to impact energy costs, jobs, and the economy in Colorado. In fact, the latest study from NERA Economic Analysis released this month reports that under this regulation, electricity prices in the Colorado could increase by an average of 31 percent from 2022-2033.

American Energy Alliance President Thomas Pyle issued the following statement:

“The Obama administration’s anti-energy agenda will hurt those with the least power in Washington, including poor and middle class Coloradans. By shutting down affordable and reliable coal power plants, the EPA’s carbon regulation will raise electricity prices and drive jobs out of Colorado. Governor Hickenlooper has refused to put up a fight to protect Coloradans and instead is helping the administration advance their agenda. Fortunately, AG Coffman is taking a stand for Colorado families by joining with 26 other states in a lawsuit against the EPA. Coloradans can help fight back by urging Governor Hickenlooper and other state leaders to resist implementing the rule until the legal challenges are resolved.”
