The good news is that on June 2, 2014, the EPA will issue new carbon safeguards to begin limiting the carbon pollution released from the country’s existing coal-burning power plants.
Today, members of the Public Service Commission voted unanimously to approve contracts to bring clean, affordable wind power to Georgia Power customers. Starting in 2016, the two contracts will import 250 megawatts (MW) of wind power from Oklahoma, enough to power more than 50,000 Georgia homes. GreenLaw, on behalf of the Sierra Club, intervened in the proceeding where Georgia Power asked the Public Service Commission (PSC) for approval of these contracts. More than one thousand Georgia Sierra Club members have taken action in support of the wind contracts.
At its regular quarterly meeting on May 7, the Coastal Advisory Council (CAC) voted unanimously to support restoring the recently revoked coastal marsh buffer by sending a letter to the state Board of Natural Resources, urging corrective action as soon as possible. The state board oversees Georgia‘s Department of Natural Resources (DNR), which is responsible for regulating and protecting the state’s water, air, wildlife, and natural environment.
