Clean Power Plan carbon emission comments due Monday 1.12.2014 Steamboat Pilot
Monday is the deadline to submit comments to the Environmental Protection Agency concerning the proposed Clean Energy Plan that aims to reduce carbon emissions from coal-fired power plants. The next step is for the federal government to review submitted statements made during the past several months in order to make a final rule on the plan by June. Originally, the deadline was Oct. 15, but it was extended to Dec. 1 after the EPA received nearly 750,000 comments before the first deadline, according to the EPA. Northwest Colorado houses two coal-fired power plants, Craig Station in Moffat County and Hayden Station in Routt County. Moffat County has two surface coal mines, Colowyo and Trapper Mine, that feed coal to Craig Station. Twentymile is a below-ground coal mine in Routt County that mines coal for Hayden Station. Both counties have expressed concerns that if the Clean Power Plan is too stringent, it could hurt the Yampa Valley economy. In June, President Barack Obama released the proposed plan to ...

Congress, EPA may have different power plans 19.11.2014 Steamboat Pilot
After 2014 midterm elections, Republicans are in control of both the U.S. House of Representatives and U.S. Senate. Many American voters may wonder if this means another legislative session filled with gridlock. Both Republicans and Democrats hope this is not the case, and plan to compromise throughout 2014’s session. This pledge to compromise extends to an issue highly contested in Moffat County, the Environmental Protection Agency’s proposed Clean Power Plan . On June 2, the Environmental Protection Agency announced a proposed rule to its Clean Power Plan as a part of President Barack Obama’s climate change goals. The EPA’s proposed rule requires existing power plans to cut carbon emissions beginning in 2020 and extending through 2029, through a “phase-in” approach, according to the text of the proposed rule on the Federal Register. Since June and throughout his tenure, the President has continued to make reducing carbon emissions and expanding renewable energy a top priority for his remaining two ...

Mid-valley homes featured on annual green building tour 4.11.2014 Steamboat Pilot
Standing next to a $6,000 bank of solar batteries in the mechanical room of a remote Routt County home, Tom McCarthy points out the connected monitoring system, explaining how the technology serves as the brains of his entirely off-grid home. “This system has been working great,” said McCarthy, founder and co-owner of Brightside Solar, to a dozen or so local residents there to see the sustainable efforts of the homeowner. The home was one of three residences toured by about 30 locals Sunday as part of the Yampa Valley Sustainability Council’s Clean Energy Collective Green Building Tour. Using newer technology, McCarthy and Matthew Piva, co-owner at Brightside Solar, are able to monitor how the solar panel system is working remotely, checking usage and efficiency without making the trip to the rural home, up a steep and windy dirt road off of Routt County Road 14. “I’m interested to see what other people are doing,” said Steamboat resident Gates Gooding, who attended the tour. “I’m looking for ideas for ...
