EPA Asking Florida to Lower Carbon Dioxide Emissions

The EPA’s proposing that Florida cut its carbon dioxide emissions from power plants by 38% by the year 2030. The agency unveiled specific targets for all 50-states today as part of the White House plan to lower CO2 emissions across the country. In 2012, the state’s CO2 emissions were over 1,200 pounds per megawatt hour of energy produced. The EPA’s asking the state to come up with a way to lower that to 740 pounds per megawatt hour. EPA estimates the state gets about 20% of its energy from coal.
