This Regulatory Impact Analysis (RIA) discusses potential benefits, costs, and economic impacts of the proposed Standards of Performance for Greenhouse Gas Emissions for New Stationary Sources for Electric Utility Generating Units (herein referred to as EGU GHG NSPS). In this action, EPA seeks to address the climate and health effects of GHGs, specifically CO2, emitted from fossil fuel-fired electricity generating units. This document presents the expected economic impacts of the proposed EGU GHG NSPS rule through 2020. Based on the analysis presented in Chapter 5, expected and anticipated economic conditions will lead electricity generators to choose technologies that meet the standard. As a result, this proposed rule is expected to have no, or negligible, costs or monetized benefits associated with it. This chapter contains background information on the rule and an outline of the chapters of the report.
