Join JEA and a panel of experts to learn what potential impact the proposed EPA’s “Clean Power Plan” may have on your business and your personal consumption of electricity. RSVP is required.

Join us live online at jea.tv!

On June 18, the EPA proposed the “Clean Power Plan” to regulate and significantly reduce carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions from the nation’s power plants beginning in 2020. With this rule the EPA would be restructuring the entire U.S. electricity sector, with substantial impacts on Florida and JEA. Comments on the proposed rule are due to the EPA by October 16, 2014. The EPA plans to publish its final rule in June 2015. Preliminary analysis of the Plan raises serious concerns about costs and system reliability.

Agenda will include:

  1. National Advocate for the Proposed Rule
    Why, why now, and how the EPA created the proposed rule
  2. Legal Expert
    Understand how the EPA plans to expand its regulatory authority throughout the entire electric sector and the likely legal challenges to its implementation
  3. Industry Expert
    Describe the Proposed Rule, its transformative impact on power generation, and the possible effects on Florida's economy
  4. JEA Perspective
    The possible effect on Northeast Florida's economy and the path forward
  5. Open Discussion

Our intention with this symposium is to help our citizens better understand the proposed rule, and not to debate the science or politics of climate change. Policymakers, elected officials, regulators, business and community leaders, academics, and citizens are all invited to attend to learn about the new rule which will likely have a major impact on our city, state and nation.
