The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency sets health-based standards, which are reviewed every five years, under the Clean Air Act Rules that apply to all emission sources in communities across the country. These are sources we see in our communities everyday, like vehicles, businesses and power plants.
The utility industry is one of the most regulated industries in the nation. Since 2000, there have been more than 40 new environmental regulations released that impact the utility industry.
At LG&E and KU, we are continually investing in our facilities to ensure our company complies with local, state and federal environmental regulations. This includes monitoring, measuring and reporting our facilities’ performances to the appropriate regulatory agencies.
