Great River Energy studies proposed EPA emissions rules

Great River Energy is studying the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s proposed rule regarding emissions from existing electricity generating units, and is analyzing its impact on our power plants. After that analysis is complete, we will likely submit comments to the EPA on the proposed rule. If the rule is finalized, Great River Energy will participate in the process to develop Minnesota’s and North Dakota’s plans to implement the rule.

Great River Energy will continue our plans to evolve our power generation portfolio and pursue our goal of achieving 50 percent renewables by 2030. We also will continue to find ways to improve the operational, economic and environmental performance of existing power plants. Great River Energy makes decisions based on what is best for our member-owner cooperatives while continuing to operate all of our generation resources in an environmentally responsible and economic manner.
