As it looks to cut carbon pollution from power plants, the CPP will help solar to penetrate new markets because states will be forced to adopt cleaner energy like solar, wind or geothermal. States that are beginning to restructure their energy policies now will be better off when the CPP comes into effect, according to Resch.
“You still have 20 states who are going forward with the development of their state implementation plans,” said Resch. “Those states who aren’t, who decided we’re going to wait and see what happens, they’re going to get stuck with a federal implementation plan. I think most states would rather develop their own implementation [plan].”
