Rappahannock Electric Cooperative Concerned Over New EPA Regulations

Officials at Rappahannock Electric Cooperative are concerned that new source performance standards instituted by the EPA will have a negative cost impact to customers. 
REC CEO Kent Farmer says they have met with Congressman Eric Cantor to share their concerns. Among the green energy changes, virtually no new coal fired power plants would be permitted in Virginia. REC's coal fired plant in Halifax provides 30 percent of energy to its customers. 
Farmer says they already makes a number of energy conservation programs available to members. They support developing new power options, but wants to strike a balance to keeping costs low for customers.
