AEP: New EPA power plant rules to raise electricity rates up to 35%

American Electric Power (AEP), one of the largest electric utility companies in the U.S., took bold aim (for a utility, that is) at the EPA’s impending rules for electric utility emissions:

The United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has proposed several new rules that will significantly increase the cost of electricity for AEP customers. AEP supports improving the environment by reducing power plant emissions, but believes that the nation can achieve the exact same air and water quality standards at much less expense.

  1. I sit back in total admiration of what the American people have accomplished to become the greatest nation ever. Yet, in recent years, I’ve found myself questioning how such a great nation could lose its way in so short a time.

    What really puzzles me is why the USA has a system whereby elected members can vote down bills only to find that the policies such bills were intended to cover can be implemented through the ‘back door’ (EPA) by unelected bureaucrats who are not accountable to the people.

    Most alarming of all, the US appears to have an economically ignorant President, who is keen to implement his green dream (the utterly discredited Spanish Model), which would clearly destroy the US economy.
