Peabody Position Statement on Affordable Clean Energy Plan

In response to the U.S. Administration’s announcement of the Affordable Clean Energy plan, a replacement for the Clean Power Plan, Peabody issued the following statement:

Peabody has long supported a quality replacement to the prior CPP as a significant step in increasing regulatory and investment certainty. We, along with multiple other parties, opposed the original CPP as being flawed on economic, environmental and legal grounds. 

While we are still reviewing the draft, Peabody believes that any proposed replacement rule must recognize the need for reliable, resilient and affordable electricity, and it also must accommodate technology investments including the reasonable upgrade of power plants by reforming the New Source Review program that disincentivized plant owners from upgrading their facilities. An early review suggests that this replacement draft goes a long way to satisfying these objectives.

Peabody is a leading coal producer, serving customers in more than 25 countries on six continents.  We provide essential products to fuel baseload electricity for emerging and developed countries and create the steel needed to build foundational infrastructure. Our commitment to sustainability underpins our activities today and helps to shape our strategy for the future.
