TAKE ACTION HAPPY THANKSGIVING!


BY ZAC PERKINS, Assistant General Manager


With the extension of the comment period through


December 1, 2014, TCEC is excited to continue to encourage member involvement with the legislative proposal that would require a 30 percent reduction in carbon emissions by 2030, applying to all domestic, existing power plants.


With this 45 day extension in mind, TCEC would like to take the opportunity to not only encourage members to voice their opinions, but the co-op will also to continue to educate and inform members about the proposal. Armed with the most up-to-date information, the TCEC team is here to answer questions to ensure members are able to voice their opinions on an issue that will have a strong impact on their community.


Nationwide more than half a million Americans have spoken up at Action. coop, telling the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) that they are concerned about the effect the proposal would have on rates and jobs in their service area. The proposed regulation could cause energy bills to double or triple as a result of mandated efforts to reduce emissions. The hope is to show regulators that TCEC members and those nationwide are concerned and actively seeking understanding of these proposals, especially those that could have such a strong impact on their bills and their community.


The hope is that a more balanced solution will be found – one that joins environmental concern with the need for affordable and reliable energy services. While protecting the environment is a constant effort for TCEC, the cooperative also has to watch out for its members and the security of its employees’ jobs. The goal is for the EPA to understand that both sustainable and affordable energy are possible, but that members want a voice in the process moving forward.
