The Clean Power Plan (CPP) produces large and widespread improvements in air quality and health outcomes that far exceed costs.
The lower 48 states and the District of Columbia can expect environmental improvement under the Clean Power Plan. The expected CPP replacement would lead to environmental harm in some states.
In Maryland, the expected replacement would lead to 6 additional premature deaths per year compared to baseline, and 106 additional premature deaths compared to the Clean Power Plan.
EPA’s analysis in support of Clean Power Plan repeal is flawed and inadequate. The accounting of costs and benefits inappropriately applies guidance from the Office of Management and Budget.
