The Clear Skies Act--Technical Support Package.
This document is a briefing packet (i.e., slide format) containing background information, results of cost and benefits analyses, results of analyses of impacts on generation and fuel use and impacts at the State and Regional levels, and other technical considerations affecting implementation.
Using a variety of models and other analytical tools, EPA has evaluated the compliance costs and related impacts of the emissions caps on affected sources.
The annual compliance costs are projected to be approximately $3.69 billion in 2010 and $6.49 billion in 2020. Related impacts--including detailed information on pollution control retrofits, factors affecting the installation of controls, marginal costs, electricity prices, average emissions rates, generation, fuel use, and coal production--are described.
