The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) will be holding a public hearing on the proposed design details for the Clean Energy Incentive Program (CEIP) of the Clean Power Plan (CPP) on Wednesday, August 3rd.

The Clean Power Plan (CPP), establishes limits on carbon emissions from power plants to address climate change.  As part of the CPP,  the Clean Energy Incentive Program (CEIP) encourages states to take early action to reduce carbon pollution by investing in renewable energy projects, particularly in economically challenged areas. The EPA needs feedback from the public on several questions, including how “low-income” communities should be defined in the program, and whether renewable energy projects in “low-income” communities should be eligible for double credits.

This is the only hearing that will be taking place in the nation, and it will be right here in Chicago.
