CHARLESTON. W.Va. (WSAZ) -- The Environmental Protection Agency wrapped up its two day hearing regarding the Clean Power Plan in Charleston, Wednesday.
It appears the opposition of the repeal was out in full force. To show their support for the Clean Power Plan, the Sierra Club presented the EPA with a 106 page transcript from their public hearing held Tuesday at the University of Charleston.
The Sierra Club's message: the Clean Power Plan is just a start, but scrapping it would be devastating to our area's future.
One example they used -- the state of Kentucky has created a number of projects using forms of clean energy.
"In Berea, Kentucky, we have a solar form that produces energy for the city of Berea. It's possible and we must move forward and create a new energy revolution and the people that's been producing energy for this nation for the past 100 years needs to be a part of the future," said Terry Blaton, of the Sierra Club.
The EPA is accepting comments from the public until mid-January.
