Electric Cooperatives Evaluating Impact of EPA’s Clean Power Plan on Members

North Carolina’s electric cooperatives, including South River EMC, are studying the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) Clean Power Plan released today to determine its impact on cooperative member-consumers.

The EPA released the final version of the Clean Power Plan, which aims to reduce carbon emissions nationwide and will transform the way energy is generated across the country. Each state is given a specific benchmark and is tasked with developing a plan to reduce carbon emissions to meet this goal.

There’s Still Time For Early Birds And Bright Ideas

Now that everyone is maxed out on the summer heat, if you’re a teacher, it’s time to begin considering cool and bright ideas!

The Bright Ideas grant program is available for teachers at public K-12 certified schools. Teachers can apply for grants up to $2,000 for innovative, classroom based ideas.

If you submit an application before August 14, you’ll be entered into the Early Bird drawing for one of five $100 Visa gift cards. Perhaps you’re looking for the right words to explain your project idea, the final deadline for applications is September 18.
