VINCENNES – WIN Energy REMC announced opposition to the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) just-released regulations for existing source coal-fired electricity generation facilities.

“We are concerned about the impact these regulations will have on our member owners,” said Tom Gregory, CEO of WIN Energy REMC. “We support a responsible energy policy that balances Hoosiers’ energy needs with environmental concerns through an all-of-the-above approach.”

The EPA’s new regulations threaten Indiana’s growing economy and could result in the loss of thousands of jobs, both in coal generation and from businesses attracted to Indiana because of its competitive electricity rates.

“The potential for these new regulations to dramatically raise energy prices and cost thousands of hard-working Indiana jobs is too great,” said Gregory.
