The Environmental Protection Agency in June released the Clean Power Plan Proposed Rule under the authority of 111(d) of the Clean Air Act. This proposed rule allows states to meet state-specific goals to limit greenhouse gas emissions. As states consider options for meeting these goals, concerns have emerged that the proposed rule could result in higher energy costs for utility customers, or ratepayers. This webinar examines energy efficiency opportunities that can help states achieve their emissions targets with minimum impact to their energy portfolio.

Kentucky sets up a unique mechanism to promote using energy efficiently in public buildings. The Kentucky Finance and Administration Cabinet established a "Green Bank" to makes loans of $50,000 or more to state agencies to help pay for projects to make state buildings more energy efficient.
