On Oct. 26, 2015, AEE filed a motion in the D.C. Court of Appeals to intervene in lawsuits brought against EPA's Clean Power Plan.
In establishing AEE’s interest in the case, the filing asserted that “AEE and its member companies will benefit directly from the Clean Power Plan” as, it is anticipated, “states and regulated entities will increasingly employ advanced energy products and services to fulfill compliance obligations.” Utilization of these advanced energy technologies will yield lower energy costs, provide more consumer choice, and improve the reliability of our electricity system. 

As AEE sees it, the Clean Power Plan simply accelerates the technology and market trends that are already moving the country toward an electricity system that is more reliable, clean, affordable, and responsive to customer demands.

Any legal action to impede or delay the implementation of this rule would be disruptive to the market for advanced energy technologies and stifle growth and investment in modernizing the electricity system.
