Bradley and Tierney discuss impact of EPA regs on electric reliability

With several pollutant regulations coming online in the near term, U.S. EPA is facing criticism for making it too difficult for industry to do business. Can the utility sector keep up with the new regulations and maintain system reliability? During today's OnPoint, Michael Bradley, executive director of the Clean Energy Group, and Sue Tierney, a managing principal with the Analysis Group and a former assistant secretary for policy at the U.S. Department of Energy, discuss a new report that investigates the impact of pending EPA regulations on electric system reliability. They explain why they believe businesses will be able to keep up with the new rules and how the government can help the private sector meet these new standards.
