EPA plan gives no credit for Southern states' strides, utility regulators say in Atlanta

ATLANTA -- Mississippi Power invested $600 million to outfit coal-fired Plant Daniel with pollution controls. The state's Public Service Commission approved one of the most aggressive energy-efficiency programs in the Southeast. Entergy Nuclear's Grand Gulf Nuclear Station is the largest single-unit power plant in the United States after a power uprate so it could produce more electricity. But Mississippi doesn't get credit for those actions when it comes to meeting U.S. EPA's proposed carbon plan for existing power plants. That was the message from state utility regulator Brandon Presley, and he made that clear to EPA officials who held daylong hearings on the rule here yesterday.
