Electric Companies Taking Voluntary Action to Protect the Environment
Environmental excellence is a continuous process for the electric power industry. Electric companies spend billions of dollars every year on environmental measures and operational controls to protect human health and the environment. As electric companies, we must—and do—comply with hundreds of federal and state laws and regulations.
The industry's commitment to environmental excellence is paying off. While demand for electricity has tripled the industry's coal use between 1970 and 2005, emissions have declined significantly, and continue to decline thanks to emissions-reducing programs enacted by electric companies.
