Update: Court gives Texas Electricity Grid Stay from EPA Rules

A federal court issued a last minute stay that gave Texas electricity grid operators including temporary relief from the new EPA Cross-State Air Pollution rule.  An earlier post on Renewable Energy World talked about how many see the new rules as a threat to the electric reliability of the nation’s grids.   

 The request for a stay of the new rule was made by Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott.  According to Abbott, the Cross-State Air Pollution rule threatens the reliability of the state’s electricity grid, eliminates jobs, and will cause an increase in Texas electricity rates.
