Prices Going Up

At least 32 are on the chopping block now and another 36 may have to shut down because of new EPA air pollution rules. These plants supply energy for 22 million households. 
Over the past few years, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has proposed four regulations to clean the air and water that will affect the nation's coal-fired power plants.
The proposed rules have divided the power industry and the nation between those that produce much of their electricity by burning coal and those that rely on cleaner sources of energy like nuclear, natural gas and renewable.
More than half of MISO generating capacity consists of coal-fired units. MISO operates the grid in parts of 12 U.S. Midwest states and Manitoba in Canada.
