Ga. PSC's Echols says state taking wait-and-see approach on power plan compliance mechanism

U.S. EPA's Clean Power Plan proposes a 44 percent reduction in emissions for Georgia. How is the state preparing for the rollout of EPA's final plan later this year? During today's OnPoint, from the National Association of Regulatory Utility Commissioners' winter meetings, Tim Echols, commissioner on the Georgia Public Service Commission, explains why he believes a regional compliance plan would amount to a transfer of wealth for his state. He also talks about the role he believes new nuclear should play in EPA's final plan.
