Clean Air Act Section 111d Information

On August 3, 2015, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) released the final version of the Clean Power Plan (CPP). The plan establishes a standard to limit carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions from existing power plants. States including Kansas are responsible for writing plans to meet the standard. In 2014, the Kansas legislature passed House Bill 2233 addressing the implementation of the CPP in Kansas. A memorandum of understanding between the Kansas Department of Health and Environment and the Kansas Corporation Commission was established as a first step towards rule compliance.

The Kansas Department of Health and Environment (KDHE) has partnered with the Kansas Cooperation Commission (KCC), owners of affected electrical generating units and other stakeholders to complete and submit an initial planning document to EPA by the fall of 2016.
